Etch vs. Sarge -- can't make up my mind
Based on what I have learned tonight about Debian, I am
not certain yet which option I will choose: Etch or Sarge,
testing or stable.
Here is my choice:
Choose Sarge (STABLE) which can only be updated with a
few specialized apt-get sources such as apt.get.org or
Choose Etch (TESTING) and get the latest releases until
Etch becomes stable.
I do have one more question about Etch: To install it, I have
downloaded the 100 MB + net install ISO file. What
happens when Etch reaches STABLE? Will I be able to
continue downloading TESTING packages. Or is this net
install and the "testing" distro really strictly an ETCH testing
distro. That is, when Etch becomes stable, can I just
continue downloading and upgrading packages in testing
(since I will be in testing) or will I have to start all over
Would appreciate your clarification.
