I want to give Arch Linux a try, because it really seems a great concept to me: i686 optimized, cutting edge features, simplicity. However, I really like to have the latest software, so I was planning to try the current packages. I just want to know how stable it is compared to Debian Unstable(very stable here), in which I'm typing this post right now. If it's as stable as Debian unstable it's byebye Debian, welcome Arch Linux.
Thanks in advance
btw. sorry for my bad Englsih
Its stability is about the same. Every once in a while, a package will be broken (or deps messed up), but that isn't common.
So go for it. Arch is almost always more up to date then even Debian Unstable. Hell, Deb Unstable still uses Xfree86 4.2.1, and some other old stuff.

It's stable enough that I have switched my desktop from debian unstable to archlinux

Thanks! I'm going to install Arch as soon as I get home
