But testing/unstable do not have security patches (See below), so there's no way it's going to be used in an enterprise. So it's Debian stable or nothing at all.

-----------------------------
The Debian Security Team, at http://www.debian.org/security/faq#testing, says:

Q: How is security handled for testing and unstable?

A: The short answer is: it's not. Testing and unstable are rapidly moving targets and the security team does not have the resources needed to properly support those. If you want to have a secure (and stable) server you are strongly encouraged to stay with stable. However, the security secretaries will try to fix problems in testing and unstable after they are fixed in the stable release.
