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."

Are you sure you're not talking about the 3.1 release? Otherwise spot on!
And, BTW, some people appreciate stable on the desktop, stable in the sense they don't have to upgrade all the time and know they only need to apply security updates for the next two years.
