    Re: Using unstable as pretty stable (Score: 2)
    by freelsjd on Thursday, October 25 @ 15:30:41 BST

    I use Sid/unstable on two Intel machines: my desktop at work and home that only I depend on. I use Woody/testing on production Intel and Alpha machines that other folks depend on. I have never seen a Woody problem. As far as I am concerned, it is stable. Occasionally, a Sid/Unstable problem comes up. I usually upgrade my home machine first. If there is a problem, I don’t upgrade the work machine until I can fix it or a newer package is installed. In the last six months, this has only happened twice.

    I upgraded to Sid because I wanted KDE2.2.1, X4.1, etc.

    I upgraded to Woody because I wanted reiserfs, newer kernels, greater security, etc.

    I have no complaints.
