I'm a Fake Debian User as well. I use siduction and have used it and predecessors for 11 years now. siduction is sid with a custom kernel and a few nifty tools added.
I swore I was going to switch to Buster and have it installed in multi-boot and running sweetly, but KDE Plasma 5.15 is still nicer than Buster's 5.12 so I haven't been able to drag myself away. Haven't had a major upgrade issue for years, although a small glitch when Nvidia drivers wouldn't build with the new 5.0 kernel took about 10 minutes to fix using siduction's own build of updated driver.
A life of eternal upgrades ain't so bad, I almost look forward to it as a weekly ritual. :D

I picked Stretch, but also using Buster as it's nearing new Stable.

I use stable debian lite. It has all the delicious flavor of regular debian but without all the calories!

That's a weird guide, you don't need /proc or /sys in /etc/fstab and it misses quite a few configuration details.

Try https://www.debian.org/releases/stretch ... 03.html.en instead.

only 2 days to go before the poll will have to modified as stable would then become Buster :)

Perhaps a moderator could lock this thread and we start a new poll?

If so, then maybe the options should be:
  • unstable
  • testing
  • stable
  • old stable
  • old old stable
  • obsolete

@ Original Post.

I got into Debian with Debian 9 Stretch. Once Debian 10 Buster was released. I decided from there on out that I wanted to stick to using anything old stable. So currently that's Stretch. :)
