Well ... I am one of those users caught a bit by doing an "apt-get upgrade"
(more specifically I took the Red Pill and upgraded some core packages) and
expecting it to "do the right thing". I didn't get the constant rebooting
but I am experiencing random application crashes now.

"The right thing" that I was expecting was:
- Upgrade core packages with newer more stable more up to date packages with
possible security fixes and functionality fixes but no great leaps in
- any unstable, in-development packages for the next version of the OS would
be in a separate repository component that would need to be specificially
- once a new stable branch was developed, I could use apt-get upgrade to
upgrade my 770 to it after changing the repository info over

I understand now that the repositories are not arranged that way for the 770
... I just wish they were.
I also have to figure out which packages to downgrade in order for my 770 to
become stable again. Maybe a reflash is the simplest way.
