No particular community. I'm running plain Debian and compile very few
applications by myself.

I installed Debian slink in 1999, upgraded to potato in 2000, and
switched to sid in 2000. Every upgrade is done with apt-get upgrade. I
never re-installed in 7 years.

Every few months, when something new seems appealing enough (better
hardware support, better latency, bug fixed) to make me build a new kernel.

I am tracking sid since 6 years. I apt-get upgrade every week. It is
rock-solid and never broke since I discovered apt-listbugs.
