The last statement about never having to re-install is true when
"riding on updates" for the Debian testing release. I have kept
servers up for 4 years this way without much problems along the way.

Because of this I also feel more confident in an upgrade from Debian
3.0 to 3.1 (than for example RHEL) since there is small incremental
updates to each package that should take care of the upgrade

Debian is my cup of tea! YMMV.
