DreamHost Gives Debian Wheezy Linux the Boot in Favor of Ubuntu

Filed under
Linux
Ubuntu

Dreamhost is one of the most popular web hosting companies and it has long been a strong support of Debian Linux.

Dreamhost isn't making the move to Wheezy which was recently released. Instead Dreamhost is moving to Ubuntu - apparently because they see it as being more stable.

"About ten months ago, we realized that the next installation of Debian was upcoming, and after upgrading about 20,000 machines since Debian 6 (aka Squeeze) was released, we got pretty tired," Dreamhost developer Brett Gailey wrote in a blog post. "The release cycle for Debian is stable, but it’s not long enough for us to focus on stability."

Umm really? Debian isn't stable enough?
