If you are unsure, stick with etch for at least its first couple of
months as a stable release. Unstable and the new testing ("lenny") will
most probably suffer from a little breakage here and there since a lot
of changes will be pulled in at the same time. If you haven't
experienced this before, lean back and learn from other people's cries
for help on this list. :)
