I used to try out different Linux desktops (RedHat, Suse, Ubuntu), and finally ended up running Debian Sarge.

Its the optimal combination of freedom in terms of flexibility and handy environment, of cause after some impetuous period of learning.

The existence of backports.org eases the burdening use of pretty outdated software in Sarge. Coupled with good security support Sarge turned out to be the most employable desktop environment for me.
I even gave Ubuntu a shot, but this turned out to be a bad idea due to weird desktop dependencies issues (Evolution, Gnome desktop meta-package ). I was strongly in disgrace with these burdensome guidelines,

Debian gives me much more freedom to setup the desktop my way. That's how I like to do things . Of cause at the same time I do have to accept that installing, configuring Debian is much more of a challenge than to set up other distros, especially Ubuntu. This may be subject to change in future, but if I'd rather like to see flexibility kept, though.
