Debian vs. Ubuntu

Just got a Lenovo x120e, an affordable netbook, from the campus computer store. I installed Ubuntu 11.04 first, used it for about several hours. Then I shut it down, brought it home, and Bang — the laptop refuses to start, not even from the recovery mode. Reason? Kernel panic! The machine froze at “Loading initial ramdisk …” which includes the kernel 2.6.38. After a quick google which turns up nothing, I replaced Ubuntu with debian lenny, which runs happily ever after since. IMHO, I think Debian has a higher stability than Ubuntu since Debian is not chasing all the new “hot” software and upgrades like Ubuntu.
