As usual, it depends :-)  I have been testing Wheezy & nightlies for 
quite a while in a Vbox instance, mostly streaming media (flash 
content), entertainment no issiues that affect my usage.

 I also put both on a new Thinkpad this summer, been updating for 
several months now with no issues. 

I use the cli for all my file management and system config, no auto 
mount stuff, TDE as a WM, mostly for kdepim. I don't see some issues 
others may have since I don't use  any of the KDE utilites etc.

I would strongly suggest using Wheezy, release critical bugs are the 
only issues left. I would suggest 3.5.14 (nightlies) instead of + Squeeze depends.
