    The latter. They are all known for being way behind the curve and seeking pure stability instead of the latest feature set.

    Ubuntu LTS is less appealing from this POV; despite being a "long term support" version it still jumps ahead of debian/stable. That said, Ubuntu makes installation of a debian-like OS a breeze, where installing debian itself is much less newbie-friendly.

    Oops.... I'm sorry for the confusion. No, I wanted to say they were of the other, stable flavor.
    Thanks for clearing that up

    My LMS has become a vital part of house.
    I consider it an appliance. I expect it to "just be there" at all times.
    I would recommend a Debian Stable setup.
    I've never had a server related problem.
    The provided .deb file installs simply and reliably.
    The hardware is an old Windows PC that couldn't keep up with Microsoft's requirement for more power.

    Free software and discarded hardware power the house music system. It just makes the whole thing so cool.

    I am using Lubuntu 12.10 for a couple of years now. It's rather crappy and I am a bit tired of it. Now that I have a better computer for my LMS I am testing Mint 15. I never got LMS to work on Mint 17.3 and I am surprised TS runs it on Mint 18.

    [edit]I got it, the new LMS 7.9 release! Just tried it on 17.3 and it works. I'll choose 18.1 XFCE for my LMS, because it's an LTS.
