While I had read Rhonda’s post on the matter of Debian Sid’s status as “not for end-users” back in the day, I was not aware that it was just one side of the coin. Now that the puzzle is complete, I thought I’d share a couple of links with my vast, intelligent audience:
- 5 Reasons why Debian Unstable does Not deserve its Name
- 5 Reasons why Debian Unstable is Not for End-Users
Pay attention to the post dates, and don’t forget that both authors are Debian Developers.
Incidentally, at the time I read the last post (i.e. the same day it was published) I was already using Debian Sid, although in middle of Squeeze’s feature freeze. I didn’t pay much attention to the comments after it popped up in my feed reader, so I kind of missed the context.
