No support for recent Ubuntu versions: solution = Debian?

My employer is getting serious about us having Ubunbu packages installaed that even *might* contain unpached security holes.

This is a problem for me with VTune, because (a) last I checked 9.04 was the most recently supported version of Ubuntu, and (b) there are several security holes that appear to remain unpatched in 9.04.

So I'm possibly facing a situation where my employer won't let me run any version of Ubuntu that VTune actually works on.

I'm considering switching to Debian Unstable or Testing. My hope is that this will let me stay very up-to-date with security fixes (as well as other packages I want installed), but will also let me install older kernels that are compatible with VTune.

Does anyone know if this plan would work?

If you have concern to work the tool on Ubuntu* 9.04 for security reason, please try on Ubuntu* 8.xx, or on Debian* 4 and 5 - they also are supported operation systems.

Besides I can confirm VTune 9.1 working on Ubuntu 9.10 with 2.6.31-20 amd64 kernel.

I have to use export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true before running ./vtlec.
