> [...] argument that Debian's stable releases are designed primarily for servers and therefore do not need frequent upgrades is valid
Currently, this is true only for a small percentage of servers - those providing legacy services in a stagnating intranet environment. Anti-spam and content filtering, anti-virus checking, infrastructures for Web development (PHP/Zope/...) etc. of the age of 2-3 years are just completely unusable in the today's situation.
