As Jim (likely more elegantly) explained, "Unstable" in the Debian Linux
world means rock-solid compared to Windows, but perhaps not bulletproof
enough to run your Nuclear Submarine on.

Desktop users (and you are one) generally want to use Unstable so they can
get the newer versions of their favorite programs. Server admins like
Stable, so the bugs are more likely to be known.
