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."

...or risk breaking your machine on upgrade with unstable or testing.

With apt-listbugs and apt-listchanges IMHO no more risk than updating other distributions.

I can't think of a single reason that would make me go to Debian for my desktop PCs over Ubuntu.

What about: release cycle based on your own schedule. Daily, weekly, monthly, you name it!
