We're going OT, however my experience based on last two Debian

installable at all, will have dependencies severely broken, etc.
In several mails you claimed testing as broken. This is completely
orthognal to my experience. I'm using testing since its existence
on most of my boxes.
To that, I run Sid/unstable on 90% of everything I have. Stable on those
machines that cannot have problems.
Only production servers are running stable and I keep my fingers from
running unstable (except of chroots).
I haven't seen an unstable problem that was a problem for more than a
couple of days... and mostly had workarounds in any case.
So were is the proof for you statement. What are the numbers of the
bugs you might have reported against packages in testing? Could you
please a bit more verbose about your problems in testing because
nobody else made it to my radar that testing is that unusable. Perhaps
I missed something ...
I've asked for specific examples.
