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."

I tried Debian 4 as a desktop/workstation, I did an FTP install of it, and found it smooth, consistent, and a lot more stable than any version of (K)Ubuntu I've ever tried. I also like how there is no branding in any of the software in Debian, they seem to just convert untouched source tarballs into .deb files and that's what you get. But I erased Debian awhile ago, I focus my energy on only BSD now, so I can't speak in regards to playing DVD's, P2P, in Debian, that kind of stuff.
