RE: Debian 3.0r_0 setup - lots of questions

Basically, once you understand what happens when you 
go to testing, you should try it.

Upsides: newer software, of course
Downsides: testing is last to get bug fixes

Although, to be on the safe side, it might
be best to have one box running stable at 
all times.

Stable is really great for things that need
to be really stable. Mainframe people, for instance,
love the 18 month cycle of debian stable releases.

I run testing now, and have had no problems.

Almost all the things you need to know about debian
versions can be found out about by
man apt-* and man dpkg

In the shortest possible...

You want testing(of course), but are you ready?

Downgrading from testing to stable is possible,
but with more difficulty than going the other way,
for sure.
