Well, if Debian is what floats your boat I really was going to suggest Sid. It is not so bad as the name implies.


I actually am running Sid at home (alongside Karmic). I can tolerate occasional breakage at home.

At work, I'm less tolerant about it. I'll probably have to move to Lenny & KDE 3.

I'm using a mix of Sid/Testing and Experimental at home too, and I've never encountered any breakage since I installed apt-listbugs.

Maybe you know this little tool but for anyone interested, its role is to analyze every packages you are going to install and watch if there are grave bugs reported against them.

If it's the case, it's not too late to decide not to upgrade the package.

I used to use apt-listbugs but it can be too intrusive sometimes, specially in larger updates - people that update Sid on a bi-weekly basis or less frequently will know what I am talking about - so I stopped using it but I remain a huge fan of the tool nonetheless and recommend it in those cases where you have to be certain that Sid won't break apart during an upgrade.
