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."

Technically yes, realistically probably not. Last I checked dpkg/apt was not capable of handling 32bit and 64bit packages on the same system like rpm systems do.
