I've heard a lot more reports from people running source, but this is

2. Which one is easy to operation, like updating..

IMHO source is better for updates. With binary you sit around waiting for
packages to decide a patch or stable milestone is worthy of dropping new
packages. With source you can get things when they hit stable branches
upstream. I did exactly one binary deployment, waited forever for a patch I
needed, and swore off doing it that way forever more.

Operations are the same either way really.

The deployment docs are quite good. There isn't really a good ops guide
though. This is true of bare metal as well though ( in process of being
addressed presently). The IRC channel is terrific though, so if you hit a
wall, pop on there and ask for help or email this list with a tag like you
did here.
