Lenny (Testing) is complete. It just happens to be nearly identical to
Etch at the moment.
Thanks steef, Joe & John for the response.
If I wanted to remain current (w/out being bleeding-edge ala Sid), would
I now be adjusting my apt-sources-list to look for "testing" rather than
"etch" as they do now?
How risky is this on a workstation/desktop-&-music-&-Net box?
It depends how often you are going to do an across-the-board upgrade of all your
packages to stay current, and I guess it depends alot on knowing what you are
doing. I guess if you have to ask, you will end up learning alot!
That's what happened to me. I stayed with etch through about 18 months of
testing and found every 3 months I would encounter some mind-bending problem
concerning things I never knew existed. Would spend an hour or a day sorting it
out with help from this list and elsewhere.
