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.

Yep, anywhere you see "testing" in source.list, change it to "unstable" -- but may I inquire why you want to change your whole system over? If it's just one or two programs, you can install those and leave the rest of your system as "testing" (assuming the necessary deps are there).
Distribution: Ubuntu, ElemntaryOS, Linux Mint, openSUSE, Xubuntu
I'm having tremendous difficulty in finding working non-us testing-repositories, and some of my favourite apps, such as amarok, doesn't appear to be available from the us sources. I don't know what is causing the 404s I get from the non-us, as the source is perfectly accessible through a browser.
Here's one of the troublemakers:

Anyway, I've upgraded to Sid now... and for some mysterious reason my laptop hasn't exploded, the house hasn't collapsed on me and nobody has hit me in the head.
Now, whether or not my upgrade has speeded up the coming of the apocalypse is an entirely different matter, of course.
