I enjoy being on the bleeding edge, because it gives you the
opportunity to dig deep into why some things get broken.  If you just
want a stable distro and don't care to think about it, use Debian
stable or some last release Red Hat.  Personally, I have been running
Ubuntu Feisty (AMD64) since 2006.  I even use 64-bit ndiswrapper
drivers, which is quite a pain actually.

When running a development release like this, the trick is to only
update around intermediate Herd releases.  If you update between the
releases, you are likely to run into APT dependency/cycle issues and
probably will hose your system if you don't know what you are doing.
I really don't know what I am doing either, but I like to pretend that
I do...
