    Stable Linux Distro for frequent power cuts

    This is really more a function of the underlying filesystem and its ability to handle power drops more than the OS. You can run any Linux distro on ext2/3/4 (for instance) and lose data if the power cuts at just the wrong time. On the other hand, a good hardware RAID controller with a battery-backed cache can keep your filesystem consistent even with power cuts because the battery backed cache isn't immediately wiped when the power goes out.

    Stable Linux Distro for frequent power cuts

    What about Debian base distros or Debian itself? I've been using Linux Mint Debian Edition recently and had a power outage, once the power came back on, LMDE booted without any errors, everything ran as normal. Though, my area doesn't have many outages often either.

    Just a thought if you've tried debian.
