    The problem is that when someone complains that packages in stable are too old (and they are), the usual reply is “you should use woody, it’s stable enough for normal use”. Well, it’s not. Probably in my case the problem is worse because I never used debian before and I’m not used to the various tools for package management (for example, right now dselect is installing a lot of packages I didn’t ask for and that didn’t show up in dependencies/recommendations and I’m frankly puzzled, anyway I’ve seen urpmi behave the same sometime), but right now I have the impression (probably wrong, I don’t know) that Mandrake, with all its problems, it’s more stable that debian. I will not surrender, though, and I’ll probably keep debian on a test machine.
