Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I ran unstable for almost 2 years, and twice upgrades went very bad and I had an unbootable system that I couldn't fix. After the 2nd upgrade failure I installed testing and have been very happy ever since. Unstable was great, and I would prefer to use it, but apparently my current wetware version won't permit it...
Running Sid is convenient and so is reloading if it misbehaves, though I've not had to do that.
First Kanotix and then Sidux made it extremely easy to test then install. (The Debian installer works well too, but I don't have a reason to use it.)
If I were running a server then I'd run stable, but for home use Sid's not a problem.
And the system you are building "how you want" .. is it a desktop? a server? a workstation? does it combine any of the above?
I'm not sure what you mean by "I don't even have an entry for testing and I have no problems.". You don't have an entry for testing. Like: "Yes, I run Debian -unstable so that I can test something" or "I run Debian testing"? Because the question of the poll is "Do you run Debian unstable?" and not "Which Debian version do you run?". Also, I fail to see the continuation: "and I have no problems".. you have no problems with what?
