but then I also got one concern, especially if this diagram gets used in more 
or less official debian projects / occasions / whatever (this might be a good 
place to add that I'm aware that Kevin started that diagram for hisself...) :

unstable is described as suited for "...laptops and desktops on non-critical 
testing is described as "... can be used for desktop systems that need more 

I think this both is wrong. Unstable and testing should not be described as 
suited for desktops - they are development branches of debian, which are 
likely to break, which break and... so on. Most of you know :)

I'm perfectly aware why some people advocate testing or sid for Desktops (the 
good ol' "debian releases to seldom" argument...) - but as said I don't think 
Debian should propagate this misconcepts.
