Why should enterprises using Debian be excited about the release of Lenny? What are the benefits of upgrading from Etch?
Enterprises will benefit most from the updates in key packages that affect them. Obviously, new kernels and drivers will add support for newer systems than we could support in Etch. New versions of office software and web browsers will give bonuses on the desktop. There are a whole host of updates for servers too, for example in virtualisation and database packages.
