I am running a testing/unstable system myself, but I would not
recommend a beginner user to use anything but stable.  Things do go
wrong in testing and I would not expect a beginner to deal with things
like the x.org transition.

So when comparing distributions I would always compare stable
releases.  I don't think it makes sense to compare development
versions since they are not intended for end users.
