... you've chosen Debian, and that would have been my recommendation. You can use -stable or even -testing for everyday life and you can use -sid/-unstabe for developing purposes.

I'm using Debian now for four years and I have to admit, that it's my favorite OS since then. The two main reasons are stability and aptitude. Up to now I haven't found another package management system, that is so easy to use and so powerfull (in respect to my needs!!!).

I really like OpenBSD and it is the one OS that could replace Debian. But I don't think that this will happen soon, because I'm working in the media business. Broadcasting via internet using flash becomes more and more important and we all know that flash on *BSD is no fun up to now.
