My 2 cents: If you're used to Debian Stable level stability, then
Testing might get on your nerves with its tiny little paper cuts
(Firefox crashing, Thunderbird not knowing what to do with your Icedove
profile, KDE having GUI elements that follow your set theme, but then
also others that don't, KDE PIM being crashy as ever,...). Of course,
the less complicated your system, the fewer bugs you'll have. So, while
Openbox, a panel and a terminal won't drive your crazy even on Sid, KDE
or Gnome might.
Well, I keep Firefox as a backup, use Thunderbird a lot, but never used
Icedove. I use XFCE and not KDE (but was thinking of returning to KDE,
not sure right now), and don't use PIMs at all. I don't know what
Openbox is either. :)
I have a pretty functional development system setup and it works well
for me. But the packages are probably very outdated. I would love to
have newer packages.
