In my case curiosity to test new stuff without having to deal with
the other side(rpm based distros) and the assurance that all new
packages even if they're buggy fall into the Debian's way of
putting together a distro.Don't forget that most people don't have the
time/incentive to learn a new distro and Debian stable is pretty
for a desktop most of the time (see slink).I also find that testing new
stuff make you learn and research things that otherwise you really
wouldn't care about.Learning new stuff is good.:-)
And btw at HDD prices this days it's quite easy to keep a stable
just in case you need the computer when unstable won't even boot.
I for myself will install unstable next week now that I have a working
Stormix install(really just Debian+some extra stuff I don't use).
The best way to escape from a problem is to solve it.
