Well it might from a live CD, but: that's tantamount to running a
completely different operating system, or version of the OS, so while it
might, possibly, install and run that program, it wouldn't affect my basic
situation.
The Debian FAQ puts it the way a financial planner might describe mutual
funds:
You can go "stable" if you are risk-averse
You can go "testing" if you can tolerate more risk, with potentially more
gains (if you just have to run the later software)
You can go "unstable" if you are a thrill-seeker.

 It seems to be a cronic Debian problem: you run into a situation where the
stable, conservative installation just won't allow something to be
installed because it needs newer versions of software which might still be
in testing or
even unstable.
I just wondered what people on this list think.
