    For what it's worth, I'm running the latest Zimbra on a Debian 6 server and it works like a charm. I don't think I even had to downgrade dpkg during the installation.
    If you really want Zimbra and Debian 6, how about trying it out ? You'll see how it goes. Waiting for an official announcement could take a while.

    There will be no Zimbra provided package for ZCS8 on Debian 6. You can, however, check ZCS out of the perforce repository and build it yourself on Debian6, or if you want to use a Zimbra provided build, Ubuntu12 is probably your closest related build.

    Hope that helps.

    If I might ask, since Debian follows a slower release cycle than Ubuntu and is therefore a more stable platform, what was the reasoning behind leaving it unsupported? Might we expect Debian support in a future release such as ZCS9 or has it dropped entirely off the roadmap?

    Thanks for the information. My stumbling block is that I can't justify an entire server for just Zimbra, and I already have tools on the box that require the current Debian 6 environment. This kills the two simpler options of a dedicated box, or downgrading dpkg to do the install. I'll still be keeping an eye on Zimbra. But I know it will be a while before I will have the available time to build it from scratch and also see how well it interacts with my other tools requirements.

    Hopefully I'll get busy enough to justify a dedicated box for it, because I do like what I see.

    err... so just put it into an lxc or vserver container... i've got zim5 7.2 on vservers and installing 8 on lxc debian now... no brainer.

    wouldnt say its slower release cycle has made it more stable, but not being a desktop OS has made it more stable. ubuntu is starting to be missing server-oriented features and is becoming irritating to work with. we're no longer deploying ubuntu servers
    for our clients.

    Zimbra 8, by the way, works just fine on Debian 6 using the Ubuntu 10.04 package. The dpkg downgrade method mentioned on the wiki must still be done, however.

    I am curious whether or not the Ubuntu 12.04 package will work in Debian 7 (Wheezy). It's something I'll have to try out later.

    Since you posted this, how is your Zimbra 8 / Ubuntu 10.04 system running on Debian 7 (Wheezy)? If no troubles since February I'd think it could be depended upon.

    Is your user base on the large side of things or smaller?
