Debian Sarge - old packages?
I've never used Debian before, but I've dcided I want to give it a go seeing as I enjoyed playing around with Ubuntu (which was GREAT). I was just wondering that, if Debian Sarge was released just a few days ago then why does it include old packages? I mean, things like OpenOffice.org 2.0 (PR) came out a while ago so when I checked the package list I was quite dissappointed that Sarge brings OO.org 1.1.3. Also KDE 3.3...I'm not gonna really notice the difference, but why not 3.4? I'm sorry to be so picky, but I've never used it before, and I was just wondering if any of you Deb users have tried Ubuntu or Kubuntu and can tell me the difference between them. TIA,
