Debian Desktop

Debian is not an out of the box distro for desktop but rather "a kit distro" (like kit cars) that needs your fine tuning and customization. If you have the time, curiosity and a bit of experience to do these type of things, Debian becomes "the ultimate desktop distro for you".

And even if you use the unstable (sid), the system works flawlessly without any major problems.
