And of course by name, and by nature, "Volatile Tree" is not something
you'd use on a stable production system.
Debian Stable is far from cutting edge, but it is one of the more stable
systems and for this reason is why so many off-springs derive from it.
Horses for courses gentlemen, unless you have a real business need to
upgrade your production system, I'd keep it running as is. Identify the
benefits before upgrading, and if it doesn't bring anything significant,
don't do it!
