I would concur - Testing (Sarge) is quite solid, and has been since I
first started using "Frozen" several years back. I do keep an eye on bug
reports and security alerts, and whenever something is quirky and not
otherwise reported as a bug, I ask here first in case I'm doing
something wrong (always a possibility) and then if no solution arises,
document as well as possible and submit a bug. I'd do the same if I was
running Stable (Woody) or Unstable (Sid).

To the OP - just remember, however, that Woody is about as up-to-date as
Windows XP, but vastly more reliable. Unstable is bleeding edge, but,
well, still more stable than XP ;)
