I saw this posted over at OSnews.com it kinda speaks for itself:
Debian GNU/Linux 3.1r0 (Sarge) has been released to the ftp mirrors. The full download is available on 14 CDs or 2 DVDs.
Its about time. I love how they refer to their "up to date" packages. I love them as a server but suck as a desktop. They need to separate their server and desktop packages. With direction the desktop market is going and speed at which it is going, they need to be more limber. I know Server Administrators (I am one myself) like a steady code base but seriously folks both KDE 3.3 and Gnome 2.8 is at least a year old. In the open source world that is an eternity.
