'But woody is so old as to be useless'
*sigh* I maintain several woody servers doing radius, SMTP, IMAP, POP3, HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, SAMBA, DHCP, HTTP proxy and others... I enjoy the fact that these systems are up-to-date on security fixes (that never break anything) within hours of public disclosure, are rock-solid stable and make my life as an administrator rediculously easy. I have chosen to compile a couple apps, although i didn't *have* to. I can't imagine another distro on my servers. I have woody on my workstations too, although here I've had to do more work with several backports in /etc/apt/sources.list and lot's of stuff compiled from source (although usually the ./configure&&make&&make install three-step is faster than my co-worker's search for a fedora compatible RPM!). There are those times when I look at fedora, but they are infrequent for sure.
