I find Debian unstable works well for me - I use it more than I use Ubuntu
- true there was a period a month or two ago when the (Matrox) mga driver
was broken and I had to use the vesa driver at 1024 x 768 resolution...
Curiosity got the better of me and I upgraded my Dapper install to Edgy to
see if I ran into the same problem you did; all went smoothly - until I
rebooted and discovered the mga driver is broken.....
I have a greater willingness to accept such problems from an unstable
release than a stable one, particularly as it was known about prior to
