I am thinking of switching to Debian (Squeeze) from Ubuntu (10.10). But these questions have been bugging me:
Is there a Launchpad equivalent repository for Debian? I am not able compile packages every time by myself without a comprehensive guide. So, I need a fairly large repository like Launchpad to keep my favorite apps up-to-date.
What about the kernel? Do I have to update it myself or Squeeze is gonna take care it for me (fairly recent updates)? I am asking this for I have read that stable releases of Debian rarely update their packages.
P.S: My main reason for using Ubuntu so far is that it has vast repositories, as compiling apps from tar-balls is cumbersome for me.
