Clearly not, or you wouldn't find it necessary to complain about the fact
that you currently find it unusable.

Unstable is, first and foremost, the staging ground for the next stable
release.  If users find it usable for their purposes, more power to them.
If not, fixing unstable for them should not take precedence over the actual
development processes; those users should be using something else instead,
or learning how to coexist with development shake-ups while running

I won't try to suggest here what that other something should be, because I
cannot fathom what sort of a desktop user *needs* cutting-edge software.
The constantly shifting sand dunes of unstable are precisely what I
*wouldn't* look for in a desktop environment that I actually plan to use for
