Is that what it is?  Hmm, I could, but then I would be begging this list
for help all the time. ;)  Well, maybe I should do that anyway since I
do have one problem that I cannot seem to solve.

Considering that I am still a noob, I can feel proud that I can pluck
things from experimental and still have no broken packages.  I have even
managed to edit a few files and written a couple of scripts, Oh boy.

Why don't I run Sid?  The same reason many others run Lenny.  They are
afraid of Sid.  Although I have to say, problems get fixed in Sid long
before they get fixed in Lenny, and as I am getting more familiar with
Debian, I am becoming less afraid of it.  At least I am no longer
running Kubuntu.  I got bored with Etch because it is too stable for me
to learn how to fix things.  I was planning on running Lenny when I
found Sidux.  It seemed the best fit for me.  Maybe I should try Sid
directly and see what the difference is.  I have a feeling that it is
less than I think, but there's only one way to find out.

But I would not recommend people new to GNU/Linux to run Sid.  I still
only have less than a year's experience.  It's only been a couple of
months since I formatted my ntfs partition.

Tomorrow my Etch is going to turn into Sid.  I let you know how it does.
 Worst case scenario I can reinstall Etch.

I accept your challenge.
