    Etch, is the name they've chosen I believe. Or at least, that's the new testing branch.

    Hopefully, they'll speed up their release cycle a bit.

    I'm completely confused as to what you're asking.

    "Sid" is always the name for the unstable release, having something to do with the sadistic character in Toy Story by the same name. The last few releases have been "Potato", "Woody", and "Sarge". The next major release will be named "Etch".

    I have a feeling the biggest change from sarge ----> etch will be X.org. It is already in Sid

    OH! So we're talking about what major features will be in Etch that weren't in Sarge? That makes more sense.... if that's the case, I agree. I think X.org will be in the next release.

    I haven't seen Toy Story since I was a child (back then it was new )

    Most of the names they use I cannot even recall being characters.. I recall Buzz and Woody.. oh and Potato.. I gotta watch it again, maybe I'll borrow it from my neighbor who has a toddler right now

    I am using Debian Testing right now actually, I dunno if it's offcially "Etch" yet though.

    EDIT: I was searching amazon, they actually made a sequel to it? Where did I miss that one..?
