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 first used Debian on my laptop because it provided encryption for my hard drives by default, but for some reason I like the look and feel of Debian much more the Ubuntu.
I now only use Debian for my computers.

Been using Debian as my desktop OS for the last 2 1/2 years and not looking back! ;)
Unstable does have its glitches sometimes, but using a mixed environment with the base system from testing and the 'bling' from unstable has been keeping me really happy for a long time!
