[R-sig-Debian] Very general question about Debian...

Hello ALL!
First, I apologize for sending question that spill-out from the scope of 
this list. However, you might be essentially the best informants.

In brief, I am thinking to give second shot to the Debian. Currently I 
am using Ubuntu 9.04, but Debian still teases me, so to say. I used to 
use Debian testing (Lenny at that time), but when Lenny became stable, 
things became very shaky in testing camp. I need Linux/GNU for work. And 
R is one of my main tools.

In brief, my question is: Should I stay, or should I go?!? And then: to 
which release?

I like Ubuntu, polished and pretty stable, but Debian is its mother-ship 
and I was very happy with it until that period of various problems (lost 
graphical functionality, wireless, mic crashed and even sound in some 
point, etc.). Only if I could reach constant stability and flawless work.

Thanks! Best,
