Why not? Testing would be my personal choice for running a desktop (or
laptop) Linux, were I not otherwise involved with Debian development.
The only bad thing is the non-existent security (I could live with
occasional critical bug but the level of critical bugs in unstable is
too much to bear for most users). There are, however, some pre-plans
afoot regarding that (more or less running the same process as with
stable, of course with different people responsible).
