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."

As with Slackware, Debian just takes a bit more initial investment to get up and running as a desktop system, but pays off by having less hassle in the long run. So it makes a great system for a power user who wants to work their own way, on their own schedule, with their own tools.
