I've been running testing for years; almost everything works fine here 
currently.  I gave up on the Debian nvidia (legacy 173....) packages and 
installed them from the nvidia site.  Opera is so slow that it's unusable 
here, but it works fine on my home box (i386); I haven't been able to figure out 
what the cause is.  I have had to put off upgrading, or pull in some packages 
from unstable, a few times in the last few years in order to maintain the box 
with the software that I have installed.
