Things have improved over the years.  "Unstable" now means (for Debian)
something that may cause a little hassle every few months.  I'm happy
that I'm living in a world where people don't really understand the need
for "stable" and "testing" releases of distributions.  There are still
some distributions where "unstable" or "testing" means that the distro
is really unstable.  It's not like the old days though, in the past
"testing" could mean "crashes every half an hour".

BR,
