As you wrote you've implied that unstable is better for older hardware than is
stable. Is that what you meant? Most advanced users probably would say the
opposite, stable best for older hardware, less likely to break hardware support
before security support ends.

FWIW, I have at least twice as many Debian installations as I do *buntu.

Easy on *buntu, simply 'sudo passwd root' plus a password makes root ready to use.
