If long term stable releases are important, and MailScanner is important
your enviroment, why not run RHEL, Centos or Oracle Enterprise linux?
MailScanner is built/designed around those.
I am a Ubuntu fan, running it on my desktop and file/nfs servers where up
to date hardware support is important. But for good old fashioned uptime
important mail servers, I run Centos.
