Arrow Where can I download Debian Unstable?


I'm a bit confused. They have the downloads for stable and testing on the website, but none for unstable. Could someone shed some light on this for me?

Thanks

The unstable version is likely to be the testing.

Unstable has newer packages than testing. The fastest and easiest way to get unstable aka "Sid" would be to get Sidux. It's a live CD that can be installed into a fully functional Debian Sid OS.

The most common way is to install Testing, and upgrade to Unstable. I have heard that there is a way to install Unstable directly if you use the "advanced" option from the Debian Installation disk.
