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."

Debian is where you end up

Debian is where you resist going, and then at some point you realize its time to just do it, and when you have, you see no reason to change.

Yes, stable is very static. Wait a year and then switch to testing, is the way around that. Testing is pretty good, and after a year or so, I find critical problems are rare. On servers you might want to stay with stable but there are few showstoppers for desktops on testing.
