Yes. But if the next stable is as long under way as sarge was, 5/6 of
the time I'll be running software that's more than half a year old...

Although testing could have been the sweet spot of debian, it's mostly
useless IMHO. This is because some software is really old at times and
some is quite buggy.

Maybe. As I mentioned I just ordered a biiig HD for my laptop. So
actually I planned to have a small partition with debian/sarge, no x, no
nothing, just my realtime csound setup and the rest in one big partition
with ubunto for desktop usage.

So maybe my small csound partition should be demudi....
