Re: testing or stable

I'd recommend staying with jessie for a few months since testing is going to be just the same until new packages start popping up from sid.

Personally I've been using jessie for about the same time and intend to move to stretch in a few months - quite possibly after the first couple of point releases.

I enjoy tinkering with everything, so I'm OK with things breaking or
needing some special configuration, hell I'll even patch a thing and
recompile from source if I have to (I know, shocking right).
Then just put "testing" instead of "jessie" into your sources.list and
you will stay on the testing branch forever.

But be prepared, once the floodgates from Unstable to Testing have been
opened there will be a tsunami of new packages rushing in form Unstable
so the ride may be a bit rough during the first weeks of the new
development cyble.
