 Debian 4.0 release day (maybe not)

According to this post in the Debian Devel Announce mailing list on May 3rd, a new Debian stable release was supposed to come out this weekend. Unfortunately, the presence of still many open bugs delayed this release for, at least, one more week (see this post ).

Five or six years ago, Debian stable was the Linux distribution that many production environments were likely to pick because of its Quality Assurance process, package management system, prompt security fixes and being backed up by a large organization. None of this changed, but nowadays production environments tend to choose other Linux distributions (RedHat Enterprise Linux, Suse, Mandrivia, etc.) so, what's different?
