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."

No problems! oh well:
Add
http://ftp.debian-unofficial.org/debian/ and http://www.debian-multimedia.org to the sources list. If you would like Opera, Flash or Acrobat you have to (?) chroot it. Don't get scared! I manage to do it and I only got a year as a Linux noob.

I must say I like Debian. I've tried, and liked, Kanotix, Suse and Kubuntu but Debian Sid is the most stable dist so far!!
