I suspect that some of the Debian support forums are infamous for
put-offs exactly like those, and similar:
"Don't think Debian-stable's packages are recent enough? That's what
you get for not running -unstable or -testing?"
"Don't think Debian-unstable/-testing's solid enough? That's what you
get for not running -stable."
"Don't think Debian-testing gets good enough Security Team coverage?
That's what you get for not running -stable."
I wouldn't know, for sure, since I don't hang out there. I just run the
stuff and write occasional bits of documentation, and it pretty much
