Next stop, Sid, aka Debian unstable. AFIC, Debian unstable is more stable than most distros’ stable.
Later the Next Day:
When I went to update the software today (Debian Testing issues frequent updates because, well, it’s testing stuff), I ran into a little problem. Some directories were missing from root’s (that’s the “Administrator” in Linux) path and apt-get complained, then rolled over and played dead.
I was able to fix the problem thanks to this article. I sent the webmaster a thank you email, as I was unable to add a comment to the article.
As an aside, updating Linux is a lot easier than updating Windows. The process is generally transparent to the user and does not require a reboot unless a new kernel has been installed.
