I used to have two partitions, one with stable (for my daily work)
and another with unstable (for developer work) but my daily work demanded
the other partition :(
Since I do not have a spare computer/disk at the moment, I plan on
upgrading just after the release. If I get a new disk/computer berfore that,
It will use potato from scratch. Wait, I just received a used PowerPC, an
IBM 43P, hmmm... can I install Debian for ppc there? :) (it arrived while
I was writing this messsage :D )
