First: I might actually install stable on the other partition on my hd,
but I'll have to think a bit more about that.
Next: There's plenty of reason to run unstable (at least everyone I know
that runs debian on their desktop thinks so). I normally don't have any
problems with my (stable) unstable box.
Against stable: Stable is nice, and I pray release rates are speeded up
after the fuzz about stable. But 3 years is simply too long on my
desktop. I tried backporting, never liked it.
Against testing: Testing is (in a bad way) in between stable and
testing. It seems there's no real consensus at to when packages arrive
in testing, so some part of the system is almost as old as stable and
others are as unstable as unstable.
peace, love & harmony
