Potato on laptops

I use my laptop about 90% under potato and 10% Win98.  I do a 'dselect
update; apt-get -fudy dselect-upgrade' every morning and generally

I always compile kernels for the laptop rather than install the potato
ones though.

Every now and again something important screws up big time but I don't
kill the package cache very often and so I can usually go back to
previous versions of things.  I also have some working versions of
_really_ important packages floating around for truly desparate times

I've got several of the guys in the office running potato now too but
all of our production servers are still running slink.
