With Debian you get exactly what they offer - they call their releases
unstable/stable etc. for a reason!
Debian testing seems about as up to date as Suse 9.1, and probably the latest
releases of other Debian based distros...
To be honest I don't think most Linux distros differ much, as they are mostly
based upon the same code... From what I have heard cutting edge Gentoo is as
or more flaky (funky compile options) than unstable Debian...
