Re: got my woody working, wanted to upgrade, already ruined my system
I think as you say all you have to do, or at least that's how i did it a
few times is, update your sources list and point to testing aswell,
Seems a whole lot better than downloading 2 iso's again.
Stable is very stable...i'm learning to live with it now since last
week's mess i had with SID.
Stable for my DVR/imap/samba sever, SID/winXP on the desktop beast...so
if SID goes bonkers on me i just go back to winXP for a few days and
then run an apt update which usually fixes SID :)
Testing, well....that's sorta like grandma, everyone loves her but no
one wants her in their house permanently..
So for me from now on, stable and only get backports of stuff if i
really really need..

would it be smarter to just go with the stable release and do an
"apt-get -t testing -u dist-upgrade" once i've specified a testing
mirror? or should i simply go with the stable release and learn to be
happy with that?
thanx for your help folks, i totally appreciate any help you can give me
