Just to throw in my two cents worth...

The process of upgrading from stable to unstable is, at this point,
somewhat difficult but not horribly so.  Obviously there is a bit of
work to be done before the final release, but I have no doubt that
such work can be easily accomplished.

Once the system has been upgraded, I have had no major problems with
unstable.  A few minor bugs here and there, nothing serious.  The
worst has been a problem with rxvt, but one can always switch to

I have used kernels 2.0.29 and 2.0.31 with unstable without any
problems at all.
