if you are looking for longevity and stability for an OS instead of
cutting edge, then perhaps you could check out centos (www.centos.org)
or whitebox linux)www.whiteboxlinux.org). Both these distros are based
on redhat but offer a longer life cycle and more stability trading off
the leading edge type of stuff.

There is also userlinux (based on debian).
