18 months, but who's counting? ;-)

the only way to have a reasonable desktop running Debian is to run
unstable, which is, well, unstable.

That's just not true.  I'm running a combination of unstable and
"experimental" (in order to get Gnome 2.6 & Evo 1.5), and the system
is very stable.

My wife uses the "testing" branch (but she doesn't know it), and it
works perfectly for her.

last I ran Debian everytime I used apt-get to upgrade, it'd break
packages left and right.

Your experiences are, of course, your own, but I've never had any 
problems when running "pure" unstable.

Really. It's Bad (tm).

You need to install glib2

He needs to forsake The Dark Side, and come to Debian.  The journey
is hard, and the way rocky, but in the end you will reach Nirvana,
and never, ever have to re-install again.

All Hail APT!  All Praise apt-get!  All Hail apt-cache!!
