Re: Dangers in "upgrading" to unstable?

It's the one I'm most familiar with, and my laptop has 128MB of memory + 256MB swap, so I'm not /overly/ concerned about the memory

However, after having read about some of the other window manglers, I'm probably going to put on Blackbox and maybe Sawfish and/or
IceWM to see which one I like the best.
