Re: desktop Linux for a debian user?
Sometimes I might do an apt-get update and upgrade and my menus will
stop working sort of
I usually check
http://bugs.debian.org to see if any bugs are listed on it.
however I have used unstable on my laptop with kde for over a year and
it works very well.
when I say breaks they are usually not show stoppers

Ah, I didn't know that Knoppix was Debian-based! Knoppix was the
first Linux that I saw, as I guess it is for many. That sounds like
it might be a good idea.
You could try Debian unstable. Works great on my desktop.
I hadn't thought of using unstable. I'm learning on woody stable,
though I have pulled a few components from backports.org. What do you
mean "it doesn't break much"?
Thanks for the quick replies! This is great input for me.
