    Correct & Correct.

    It's a development branch...

    Code:
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ uname -sr
    Linux 3.7.0-030700rc6-generic
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ lsb_release -sd
    Ubuntu Raring Ringtail (development branch)
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ apt-cache policy nvidia-current-updates
    nvidia-current-updates:
      Installed: 304.64-0ubuntu1
    So how unstable is it ala a ship that is about to sink or not quite...

    The word "unstable" with reference to software actually means "changes often." Many people use Debian Unstable as their primary desktop OS and it doesn't crash all the time or anything. The daily releases are extremely "Unstable" in this regard.

    On the other hand, they shouldn't break any more often than the alpha releases, if you are used to running those. Not recommended as a primary OS, but should be fine to play with if you install it on a different partition. If you are not comfortable repartitioning your harddrive, you probably shouldn't be running a dev release.

    Let's put it this way... Ubu dev branches are brittle and easily broken, especially when you're running "off the reservation" like I am (hacking the DE, and so forth).

    Personally, I look forward to the breakage. Stress is exhilarating, when you're on top it. It's only when stress rolls over you, that it kills you.

    If you aren't into chaos and mayhem, I strongly suggest staying away from dev releases!

    Linux 3.7 is almost fully cooked, then I'll be off to 3.8, as soon as the rcs hit the gits.

    Things are moving very quickly, right now. I installed a new kernel every day, during the past week -- had to keep clearing them out, because my root partition was getting dangerously full.

    Anyway, it isn't a race. I just enjoy testing kernels -- that's all. It's sort of a fetish with me. LoL!

    Speaking of updates...

    Just added a little sizzle to Conky, with a new Conkywx weather icon set.

    Currently on Ubuntu 12.04 with GNOME Shell... I don't know if upgrade yet, Unity wasn't good on Quantal and... well, GNOME Shell is good but Unity is more productive. I also downloaded Mint 14 RC with Cinnamon and replaced OpenSUSE with it; it has nothing to do with Mint 13, it's gorgeous and ultra-stable!
