:) I understand , as user/pseudodevel/colaborator sometimes I got the
same feelings , but without entering in much philosophy Tuxbrain was
born as a FOSS friendly(to not say lover) company and no reasons on
the horizon to leave that way :)

Talking about resources a

Intel Core2Duo 2x 2.33+ GHz 1066 MHz 64 bits
HDD 	2x 500 GB SATA2
Debian Lenny server is on the way to host this :)

most people use unestable because there is no more option, if a
testing release is released any day I think people will happyly
migrate to that one time to time.

After reading 4 times this paragraph I understad you, you mean use the
showroom as motivation to devels/matainers to push to be in the
testing release to be able to appear in the showrom, well good point,
I hope we have a testing soon then :)

soon soon :)
