I've been using Debian for headless servers for many years.
Distribution upgrades via apt-get or aptitude have been smooth and easy
for many years.  I have one server that's been in-place upgraded from
Woody through Lenny with only minor dependency issues--that's 4
distribution upgrades over 5 years--Woody, Sarge, Etch, Lenny.

Then again, I don't use Debian kernels, so my kernels were never
upgraded during the dist upgrade.  This may have prevented some
headaches.  I roll my own kernels from kernel.org source and tend to
keep fairly current.  So, when I do a dist upgrade my current kernel is
usually newer than what the dist upgrade provides.  The fact I leave out
features I don't need may play a role in preventing problems as well.
