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.

To all that like the old stable style of DE I recommend TDE

That looked interesting! I used to use KDE all the time and then decided to use XFCE after finding that KDE kept my laptop fan running and the laptop running hot all the time. I don't have that happening in XFCE (but did add some power control stuff which may have helped as well). I also got quite used to XFCE and the fact that everything looks the same. No more GTK looking one way and KDE stuff looking another way.
