I am not sure if that makes me happy, as I am running Debian stable "squeeze" on all my machines (excellent release by the way) and I would need to update them or run oldstable for a while. It isn't even one year old, by goodness' sake!
OTOH it would be great to run a current Iceweasel or Chromium, and have some cutting edge packages for things like MongoDB. I am beginning to feel the pressure that Fedora or Ubuntu (non-LTS) users have withstood for so long: upgrade or die.
IMHO, at this point, one major release every two years is fine for Debian.
