debian testing vs debian stable with testing repositories?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 28, 2009
I am a ubuntu user but I want to go to the next level to use debian because what I heard of it, but I get confused to what to install on my computer do I install debian testing or debain stable with testing repositories.
- I want to use this system to the home use only.
- I want to use the newest packages because the stable packages is too old to use.
- What about using more than one repository i.e stable with testing with unstable at the same time (the same sourcelist)
- Is the testing and unstable sid packages good enough for the home use?

Debian testing to stable
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 24, 2005
I had mistakenly installed debian testing on a system and thereafter installed a number of apps.I want to switch over to debian stable(sarge).Will the editing of the sources.lst file alone do that?Or only a reinstall........I dont want to reinstall as long as there is another way of doing so.I also have data,which I dont want to loose
Is debian testing more stable than ubuntu12.04? why? what says that?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 19, 2014
I don't know much about debian and ubuntu. I just want a good system to be very stable and with good features such as gcc4.8 etc. Ubuntu 13.10 is not stable with my testing. And debian 7.4 is seem to be too old about kernel, so it could not use much new features, especially including correct install my ATI HD 6630m driver.
So I want to learn more about debian testing and ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Then I could get a stable sys with new feature and also learn a little more about debian series sys.
Debian Stable vs Testing vs Unstable

I am confused about the different types of Debian OS offered by Debian community. What do you mean by them ?
What testing do they perform ? Are they on the kernel code or the software installed on the OS or just the compatibility testing with various hardwares ?
If I install Debian Stable, then Couldn't I get latest versions of the softwares like firefox using this command "apt-get install firefox" ?
What are the advantages of all the 3 Debian OSs?
How can Ubuntu pretend to be stable as based on Debian Testing or Sid?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 4, 2010
I've been looking at ubuntu and debian for quite a while now and I figured out ubuntu 9.10 was based on debian Sid (which is the most unstable version of debian) while the next ubuntu 10.4 will be based on debian Testing (which is between debian stable and sid in terms of stability).
Just a simple question: how the ubuntu developers do to make a stable release based on a buggy debian while debian developers take much more time to release a very stable release?
Debian testing v.s. stable+backports
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 6, 2010
I have a question for those of you who use Debian stable + the backports repository. Compared to testing, how up-to-date is stable + backports? Is the repository well-populated? I have received exactly zero updates from Ubuntu's backports.
I'm assuming that stable+backports is a little behind testing, but AFAIK testing "breaks" more often. Is the added stability of stable+ backports worth the longer wait for new software?
Stable vs Testing vs Unstable

I'm jumping right to the point: I need Steam.
Yeah, looks simple (and might be for you), but there a lot of things to consider.
Steam is just on jessie's repo. I plan to run wheezy. The "solution" I found is to "borrow" jessie's repos for a few minutes, changing my sources.list, installing Steam and then removing it from there.
Well, it worked the 1st time, but yesterday I tried and guess what? After doing the same steps my gnome3 got messed up real big, I didn't even have gEdit (LOL). Let me tell you the steps:
* Install wheezy
* Add i:386 architecture
* Install ia32-libs
* Install the drivers (following the debian's wiki)
* After reboot, insert jessie's repos to my sources.list, install Steam and after that removing jessie's repos.
Now, this SHOULD be straight forward. But it isnt. After trying to run Steam it says I have missing libraries. This is where I'm confused, because the fix for this was:
