I don't mean to speak for Yavor, but as an ex-Debian user, I recall
*active* daily updates for Debian (between stable releases)--unlike
the case for Ubuntu, I suppose.  If you benefit much from staying on
the cutting edge, then Debian might come out a lot better here.  I
think it depends on the kinds of packages that you really use heavily.
For myself, I just periodically update from repositories and install
locally a few packages critical to me.

BTW, for those missing VLC--and I did miss it, too--xine-ui has worked
well for me.  Indeed, I recall it playing some stuff better than vlc
(and gxine).
