  Testing seems to be the least secure option.  Now that Sarge is out,
stable is great... but Woody was _so_ out of date, and testing (by its
very nature) lags on security issues... it seemes to me that up until
recently unstable was the best choice for desktops.  Usually, if
something breaks in unstable, you can install it from testing until it
is fixed.

  Maybe I'm missing something?
