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've never ran into lots of orphaned packages on my system, and have always used apt-get, both in Debian and Ubuntu. Synaptic is also a much sharper and more user-friendly app than Aptitude, and I am no CLI newbie.
