I want to install VirtualBox & try out different distros of Linux. I researched the different package managers. For 1 reason or another I eliminated all but Debian.
I've spent hours on DistroWatch & I can search for distros based on Debian, Debian (stable), Debian (tested) & Debian (unstable). I've noticed that some of the Linux distros are based on Debian (unstable). Why would anybody want a Linux distro based on Debian (unstable)? Wouldn't it crash frequently?

This will be my first foray into Linux.
