I would.  (I run Ubuntu at home, Debian on my personal mail/web server, 
and Debian at work.)

I'd rather have all my software maintained by the distro's 
package-management system (if I can do it and still have access to the 
most recent versions).  One of the things that made me tear my hair out 
when I first tried to learn Plone was that my Plone book, the Plone 
website, and Ubuntu all recommended different systems for installing 
Plone and all its dependencies, and IIRC they defaulted to different 
versions as well.
