That is a big exaggeration.  For me testing has been quite reliable,
with the odd problem every month or so, most of which are easily fixed
(nothing too serious, I never had a data loss or an unbootable machine,
the most serious and difficult to fix was fonts looking ugly in Mozilla).
And I'm using it ever since it exists.

A much more workable approach is to use testing by default and
to update to unstable or hold back those packages that have problems.
