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."

RE: Debian stable/unstable

...because Debian testing is just as "stable" as Ubuntu?
BTW, I just laughed some time ago, when an update for Ubuntu's Xorg was broken.

I didn't laugh because I am spiteful or something, but because I updated Debian unstable the same day and I got exactly the same error.

And that's why I think that someone who wants a stable and updated system is better off running Debian testing insted of Ubuntu. At least, if you don't mind putting a bit of time into it to get multimedia and such working.
