I agree, I like running unstable stuff. I've upgraded to Karmic Koala,
but I didn't have any dependency breakage, so I'm either very lucky or
don't have many packages installed compared to everyone else.

Does anyone know if it's possible to have the entry's in sources.list
always be for the unstable version of Ubuntu? For example, in Debian I
could have unstable as the version which would download Sid, or testing
which would be squeeze. Thanks.
