[Freeswitch-users] Debian or Ubuntu

Debian is more logical if you are talking about building a platform because
you already have to deal with very fluid FS code.  If you also have a
bleeding OS you will further complicate your world.  I think ubuntu serves
a good purpose to allow pre testing of what's coming down the pipe in a
similar way to running the master branch of any one software.  Just with
ubuntu in many cases you are running the master branch of everything
including the compiler and the libc and all the libs.  I know there is a
more hardened version of ubuntu that is more suitable for production but it
really seems like its a more logical choice for a desktop OS.

Debian seems to do a good job of saying current.  I personally use one of
everything since I have to make sure it works everywhere =D
