But if you really need that form printed ASAP and that one programme just decided it can't print anymore for some reason, the last thing I wan is hunt bugs because I don't have the time for it.
As a testing / wheezy user, that's what prompted me to install Virtual box, so I could use my printer without having to boot to squeeze, back when cups was broken a few months back. Or maybe it was just the printer driver that was broken, at any rate I couldn't print to my Kodak printer. I've only been using Debian for about a year, but I agree that testing probably isn't the best for the 'general' user.
Though Mint (LMDE) apparently decided to set up their own snapshot repo. so their users can have a semi-stable 'Debian testing' system. Personally, I plan to stick with wheezy for a while, hopefully I've endured the worst of the headaches since I think it's close to code-freeze.
