Exactly how does debian offer more choice than any other distro?

Sounds like there are two choices, stable, and unstable...


How about, Fedora Desktop, Fedora Server, Fedora Live, Redhat Enterprise
Linux, Redhat Technical Workstation? 

Sounds like a whole heap of choice to me, then you've got

Ubuntu Long term support server, Ubuntu Long term support desktop,
Ubuntu Edgy server, Ubuntu edgy desktop, Ubuntu Feisty server, ubuntu
feisty desktop....

Are you starting to get the picture, these distros actually have recent
software, which IS stable!

GNOME 2.18 IS Stable for instance, its new, but its stable, its out of
testing and released, all within 6 months...

I think saying debian gives you more choice than any other distro is
like saying windows vista gives you more choice than any other windows
