For as long as i only use Slackware on desktops, i will always use -current.
The development tree is usually very stable and doesnt get updated on a daily basis like rolling release distributions so the time spent maintaining it isnt that much in compare to the stable tree.
Most of the time, updates are pushed in one go after a certain period of time. eg. like now that theres no updates for 2 weeks. But sooner or later theres gonna be a bunch of them.
Sorry i lied! I voted for current, but am actually running stable 12.1 as well. That said, kde 4.3.3 in current is really nice, though i cannot set it up exactly the way i did with kde3, but kde4.4 has enhancements up in its sleeve, that may redefine my usage habits anyway.
I copied my Slack13 to a different partition to play with it. Then I upgraded it to -current and recompiled the kernel to 31.5. I've been using current with XFCE/fluxbox for over a month without any problem so I'm probably going to stick with it for the time being.
