Debian and its clones FreeSoftwareMagazine takes a look at Debian as a desktop system, and they conclude: "I feel that Debian Etch is as good on the desktop as it is on the server. It has a long rich history, a strong community, is amazingly stable and is a great fit for both my servers and my laptop. I urge everyone to give it a go on the desktop."

Debian has contributed to linux world as a novel distro system, novel file management, novel configuration files, first distro which was easy-to-use, and have thousands of volunteers to make apt-get system functional on desktop as well as server.

Similar novel contributions are from Redhat, Slackware, SuSE, FreeBSD and I appreciate them as well

What is contribution of OSN darling Ubuntu (on novelty factor), knoppix etc? Can you list 10 vs debian or slack.
they just pack old wine in new bottle....
