Use what you like but Xorg has went Sid and stabilized, KDE is about 95%
through the abi transition, Gnome did its update... If you are gonna hang out
with the Kid Who Breaks the Toys; I would recommend installing apt-listbugs.
It lists critical bugs before each apt installation; and has saved my butt grief. 

With the exception of Koffice not making the transition, reinstaling k3b 
(Unofficial repo), and having to manually restart KDM after the latest 
upgrade, I literally had to do NOTHING after a dist-upgrade.
Good Job, Developers.

Me? A skeptic? Can you prove it?
