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'm a huge fan of Debian; it is a rock-solid, bullet proof OS. I'm also a Slackware/FreeBSD user so stability, security is important to me.
I love the Internet install, it is fast, painless. You can also add the non-free repos if you want java and other codecs.
Debian has a winner in Etch:)
