"Debian is like Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It's great for servers with it's slow releases with security patches. Industries love never having to change unless absoletely necessary. But Debian does not make the greatest desktop distro."

Indeed, not out of the box. But you can make Debian anything you want it to be: from the 100 MB Sarge installer which provides a fully working OS, to anything with an incredible choice of DEs and Windomanagers as well as apps.
You have 2 possibilities: do it yourself or chose one of the many derivatives: Kanotix and Libranet are my favorites because they are 100/% Debian compatible.
