Window Managers "The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of version 3.5.13.1 of the Trinity Desktop Environment. The Trinity Desktop Environment is a complete software desktop environment designed for Unix-like operating systems, intended for computer users preferring a traditional desktop model, and is free/libre software." Not the first time we mention TDE, but it's basically the continuation of KDE 3.x. There's a market for this.

I don't think that's a reasonable assumption. A lot of people use Stable plus backports (I do) A lot skip testing and jump right to Sid. I believe (I may be wrong) that Sid users out number Testing users, as most of the time the software in Sid is newer.

Testing is frozen ATM, thus it is a lot safer than Sid and a lot more recent than Stable.
P.S. Apologies. When Testing is frozen, there isn't much change in Sid either.

What do you mean most of the time. Software moves from sid to testing, not testing to sid.

I communicate with a lot of debian users and the trend I've noticed is most people using testing, then stable, then sid. Of course there's no real way to know what the usage statistics are for certain but that's what I observe.

Yes it does move from Sid to testing, that's why after a few months after testing is released as stable, Sid has newer software, as it is where new software is vetted, and then eventually moved to Testing. It takes time to move from Sid to testing, hence in my experience you get newer software in Sid. As the freeze approaches, Sid and Testing begin to come closer together, as new software going into Sid slows down, and the process begins all over again
