Wheezy is now frozen.

Nice timing, I was just about to install squeeze for someone. Seeing how wheezy is frozen, they'll be getting that instead.

I'm not a huge fan of testing, until the debian release team announce "it's cooked", but that means it's no longer testing...

unstable gets my vote over testing, freeze or not. packages just go awol from testing which can be annoying - it only comes into it's own as a mixed testing/unstable system IMO.

Another problem with testing at the moment is that too many noobs are running it - and when it breaks, or something doesn't work the same way as 'buntu, they whine and complain (usually at forums.debian.net).

Stable has always been my main install but after retirement I tried Testing and Unstable and prefer Unstable over Testing too. But do believe Wheezy will be the sweet spot for my two year old computer as the 3.2 kernel as solved all my error messages in dmesg.

I always have mixed feelings when Debian freezes testing.

- It means my machines running stable will "soon" be upgraded
-> Happy!
- It means my machines running unstable, will get very few new packages for some time.
-> Not happy.

Freeze means a boring sid for a while, then once release happens all hell breaks loose.

Some of us refer to that as FUN.

Have squeeze & wheezy, prefer gnome2 over 3 although I can get around in gnome3, not really looking forward to having to upgrade my squeeze box.

I'm switching to KDE as it is much easier to use than Gnome 3. Faster too.
