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."

Debian is what you make it - if it is crap then you only have yourself to blame. Debian also has good "canned" default installs if you dont want to "roll your own"!

OVERALL I would say that Debian is the best distro out there. IMO overall it offers more choice, more flavors, and more options to be as bleeding as any, as stable as any(probably more), as cool as any, as slick as any - it is universal!

It is like a good spouse, sure you flirt with others, sure some have a better ass, sure some just flick-your-bic for a while but the one you want to come home to is Debian. (was that weird) ;)

Are spouse analogies the new car analogies? Are they slashdot-approved? ;)

The kind of woman you want for a spouse.

(hope that covers me and keeps me out of the doghouse) ;)
