^Debian Sid(unstable) ~ubuntu Hardy and Debian Lenny(testing)~ ubuntu Gutsy :)
Hope this solves the confusion.
BTW,Lenny is very stable more than gutsy too!and Debian Sid means new packages and it is a lil u may need to force installation and overwrite options as the .deb packages packed prolly may be buggy.

I use Lenny+sid using apt-pinning,which i recommend to only Debian freaks!
also the daily download of 12mb+ and in some bad days it will be upto 100+MBs esp Open office upgrades!:p so choose urself.
