"Useless?" So all those people running web servers, mail servers,
development projects, file servers, etc. on slink boxes are deluded?
"Useless for Mike Bilow's needs?" Certainly. Only you can determine
what you need.

So if we today relabeled the potato dist as "stable", containing exactly
the same packages as it did yesterday, you'd be ok? If so, forget about
the label. You seem to think that the quality of the packages you use
from the potato dist are sufficiently reliable for your needs. (Again,
only you can make that judgement.) Great! Use them!
