Hi Tim,
you realize having the latest vesion means it has little or no testing.
sid is the most changing software stream and the most likely to have
software problems because it is where software is being tested. If you
want something to 'just work' Sarge would be idea. While many people run
sid beacuse it is the 'cutting edge', it has risks that may cause apps
to stop working from time to time. It you (can/want to) handle this, ok. I
run sid on my workstation and I have no critical infrastrucure to
distrub. but if I was running a RDBS with an old unix distro, I'd want
stability, hence would choose to run 'stable'.
