Agreed.

I understand. But still with all measures the curves give the impression
that there is practically little difference between testing and unstable
and that stable has about 10 to 20% (qualitative!!!) of the problems of
those.

My personal experience with 15 boxes of stable and a few boxes of
testing/sid is:

- there are more problems with sid than with testing

- once debian is installed, there are next to zero problems with stable

- on a quantitative plot, the differences are even bigger. On average,
there is about one (security) update per week on my stable systems.
There are about 100 times as many bug fixes in testing and even more in
sid.

Just look at http://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/ to get an
impression of how many more release critical bugs there are in sid
(approximately the red curve) compared to testing (approximately the
green curve).

Unfortunately, I don't know how find out how many RC bugs there are in
stable. A quick scan shows that most of those are about non-free
documentation or other issues that don't directly affect the usability
of the system.

On a qualitative plot, I would simply put testing a bit below unstable
and stable much closer to the lower axis.
