I used Debian for my servers for several years now. I'm looking for stability only doing security updates. In the past I had some issues with Ubuntu after an update. Debian has always been rock solid for me.
Now I'm in the process of transferring some sites from Etch to something new. It's a droplet at Digital Ocean and they offer a premade LEMP stack, but only on Ubuntu. Plus the announcement of https://www.serverwatch.com/server-news/canonical-extends-ubuntu-18.04-lts-linux-support-to-10-years.html makes me think I finally make the switch.
I guess I'm losing a little performance with the bloated ubuntu kernel. But dont' see too much cons. Major issue for me is stability, 10 years sounds to good to be true! Any thoughts on this decision?
