I am also not trying to start any kind of distro war!

I switched from Fedora for business use because I got right tired of
having to update every six months (or so). Upgrading sometimes left me
with issues (I am a serious user NOT a hacker so I still am not very
proficient at troubleshooting) that cost me a lot of time and
sometimes expense. So I made a decision to switch to Debian because I
liked the idea of longer term upgrade cycle. I would like to stay on
such for precisely that one reason - - I do not like to change systems
twice a year.
