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."

Strange though...
Same position here - Debian 4 x86_64.
Most problems where solved with
dpkg -i --force-architecture some32bitprog.deb
Shame on Skype and Opera for not makeing 64 bit versions of their othervise wonderfull programs (esp. Opera).
I was astonished when I've tried to play wmv, or mov, or mpg or mp3 or DVD files - no problems at all. And no sound problems, which annoyed me.
Debian rocks. I love this game... i.e. distro ;)
