The title is my tag line at LQ for the types of distribution(s) that I run. I can’t classify as I keep playing with the new one. That goes for pretty much any software that I use. if there’s a newer or bleeding edge version out there that may have some new features or capabilities, I will likely try it out. Sometimes an Alpha build is just that – buggy and unstable. Other times, its as solid as a final release.
As I’ve written before, I used Firefox’s predecessors before it was Firefox (remember Phoenix?) and I was using WordPress 2.1 before it was released as a final product. I will still do so and am planning to possibly “upgrade” even this blog to the 2.2 nightly build (by the way, there is an update for 2.0 and 2.1, so go get them!), updating about once a week (after testing the build on my home machine).
Do you use testing or experimental software? Do you take other types of risks when you could choose a safer method?
