testing is, in my opinion, the feature that sets Debian apart from all
other Linux distributions. It's as if woody is released every day. I
can't imagine anyone using potato on his desktop system (Mozilla M18?),
and I bet a lot of (most?) production systems out there have also tired
of potato and made the move to woody. If the option were a move to
unstable, we'd probably be stuck to Mozilla M18 today, and perhaps
seriously considering a switch to some other more current Linux
