I could imagine the situation where you run a fairly simple server, one
that does just one or two things (like a webserver without extensive
databases), and if you were an admin that were always keeping up to date
with updates, that there's not a great deal of difference between
updating a collection of RPMs, to updating all of them with a new

But once you make a server complicated (throw in mail, databases, user
file storage, etc.), rapid distro updating does become a much greater
nuisance, and you will want a base system with a longer life.

I can't say that I've really come across updates that made a system
unstable or plain broken.  And that sort of thing could just as easily
happen while updating packages on another distro with a longer life than

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r
