Outside of issues with the lack of stable, working NVidia drivers for my

laptops which have only one PS/2 port, and are connected to the laptops
via a 2-port PS/2-to-USB adapter.
The way to use Sid as a stable Debian is to use Aptosid (they do a good
job of screening out ill-behaved packages) and only update apps you use
when you want to update to get a feature. Rosegarden has a key bug fix
in 11.11.42 very important to my needs, and Debian Stable doesn't have it.
I avoid Ubuntu. Every time I've tried to upgrade from one Ubuntu to
another, I've gotten a hosed system. And Canonical is getting weirder
and weirder. I fully expect there will eventually be a Canonical Linux
distro that is so different from its Debian roots that they'll
effectively be incompatible.
