Is there an easy way to upgrade a Debian machine (e.g. change you apt.sources list)? I wasn't able to find any instructions on the Ubuntu site.
Upgrade from Debian?

Does upgrading from Debian testing or unstable work?

I just added the Ubuntu main to sources.list, gave it a suitable priority, and then picked the stuff I wanted with aptitude.
Galeon stopped working while the upgrade was running, but that is not very surprising ;-) It fixed itself after aptitude was done.
I didn't run into any problems so far.
