I am currently running multiple VPS's of which one is a Hardy based LAMP install with PLESK. I have just one gripe about running Hardy on this VPS: PHP 5.2 is horribly outdated!! It has 5.2.4 in the repos, whilst 5.2.14 was released a while ago.

As an LTS server distro you would expect these kinds of packages to be updated to ensure security?

Please don't tell me I can use Dotdeb, it was never meant for Ubuntu and I have had problems with it in the past.
