I've decided to do the same on my laptops. Trying to keep modems, 
wireless drivers, video drivers, kernels, yada yada all working 
concurrently is a little too painful in Debian - at least, at my pain 
threshold. Once you've seen it all Just Work, it's hard to ignore. I've 
also lost patience with the blocks in testing that affect me.

Lest we forget: there is only one choice on servers - the Big D.
