However many small companies can't pay a competent enough sysadmin.

It's why they often choose what seems for them the most simple solution.

I certainly don't know which is the best for a distro, but as long as
there will be so much sweat and "fear" about upgrading a distro, there
will be this recurrent discussion.

I know that they have not as much users as mandriva do, and also they
are young, but unity linux started with the idea of a small core with
long term release, and branches that add packages such as desktop, wm,
de etc. that can have a short term release.

Just telling that for the discussion, not that this is what to do :)
