Stable release is what it says - stable. Able to run mission critical
servers. There are plenty of other options in Debian. Personally I run
2 web servers on the current stable, a laptop on testing which is a
rolling update, a desktop on stable and a desktop on unstable which is
what all the other derivatives base on and is why they keep breaking.
Linux is about choices and Debian gives you more choice than any other
