  while testing has been fairly decent, once in a while
there are issues you may have to resolve via other means.

  if you are new enough to linux and Debian i do not 
recommend using testing because once in a while you
may be stuck.

  are you running this system and expecting it to 
always be available?

  what i do to make sure i have a booting system is
that i keep a stable partition and i also keep a 
bootable USB stick.

  i did have to use these this past month or so.
