Same can be said of us Gentoo users.  If you want to live on the
bleeding edge, you keyword everything and get unstable packages.  You
can even go a step farther and get packages that are not even tested
enough to be in portage.  If you want some stability then you don't use
keywords and everything is "fairly" well tested.

Me, I'm looking forward to the new KDE but I do want it to be usable and
at least reasonably stable.   I just hope I can have a faster puter by
then.  I have a AMD 2500+ with 1GB of ram right now.  Not sure how fast
that is going to be, especially for the compiling part.
