Debian and its clones FreeSoftwareMagazine takes a look at Debian as a desktop system, and they conclude: "I feel that Debian Etch is as good on the desktop as it is on the server. It has a long rich history, a strong community, is amazingly stable and is a great fit for both my servers and my laptop. I urge everyone to give it a go on the desktop."

You do know the difference between Testing and Unstable? You'll find broken or temporarily unavailable packages only in Unstable. Testing consists of the well-tried packages of Unstable.

So people running Testing will have, after some delay, the desired updates they don't find in Stable. And if they complain that Testing is broken, they are perfectly right about that :-)
