Many swear seem to swear by sidux, though its claim to turn "unstable
into a stable and reliable operating system for every-day usage" seems
at odds with common sense, especially given its own advice to avoid
dist-upgrades in the middle of "serious work" because "any package in
sid can break at any time, and any person can be the first to discover
it, especially if it is not a standard sidux package."
I'm obviously never going to get a considered, impartial appraisal
from their forum and IRC channel, so has anyone here tried sidux only
to find that Testing was better suited to their desktop needs?
If you want to run a "stable" version of Debian "Unstable/Testing", why
not use Ubuntu? As I understand it, Ubuntu takes the Testing repos and
makes them a bit more stable, then releases them.
