    I guess some people do. I know many guys still running 10.4.
    For me, 'precise' is already outdated, comparing the packages versions with 'quantal'.
    (backports don't help much here).
    The irony of this statement is that the packages in Precise are equal, or in some cases, newer (kernel, browser, etc.) compared with your beloved Debian Wheezy...

    That's right. That's explains why Ubuntu Stable is much more unstable than Debian Unstable

    But will they be newer next year, Feb 2014?

    Im not fan of Wheezy - Im fan of rolling release distros
    Eg Debian Testing, Aptosid, Siduction, PureOS, Dreamlinux, CrunchBang Waldorf.

    Back to package versions:
    Chromium-browser:
    Debian Wheezy/Sid - 24.0.1312.68-1
    Ubuntu Precise/Quantal - 24.0.1312.56-0ubuntu0

    Oh I think you mean Firefox - yes very outdated in Wheezy but sorry Chrome(ium) is the leader since 2012. Firefox has never been default browser in Debian anyway.

    Kernel? Wheezy and Sid users usually use Liquorix kernel
    Currently 3.7.0-8.dmz.1
    Quantal - 3.5.0-17.28

    The point is I will be running Debian Testing for next 5 years (until hardware upgrade) getting new packages without reinstalling system.

    Lets meet here in February 2018 and compare package versions:
    Debian Testing vs Ubuntu Quantal.
    Say again, how long is Quantal supported?

    ^ Someone just figured out what "long term support" means!

    I'll be probably back with Ubuntu when I get some ARM gear because it gets much better support from Ubuntu than from Debian.
    But it may change.

    Re: 12.04 LTS vs. WinXP

    It seems the thread is turning into an 'oranges vs. apples' debate for which a Help & Support section is no good place.

    The thread seems to have met its purpose on post #24 and now is getting off the rails with irrelevant comments. Hence is Closed!

    Thanks everyone for sharing your opinions!
