I posed myself the same question, not only regarding the packages, but also
regarding the actual kernel.
This is how I helped myself practically:
a. I installed the snapshot of 28th of May.
b. I installed kde 3.5 as preferred surface.
c. I consequently eliminated every unusual gnome stuff.
d. I performed an upgrade to Debian Sid.
e. I performed an upgrade to KDE 3.5.7.
f. I performed an upgrade to Openoffice 2.2.
g. I performed an upgrade to koffice 1.6.3.
h. I compiled a vanilla 18.104.22.168 kernel from kernel.org.
My personal remarks on that:
a. I am still very happy that I ever decided to get completely rid of Bill
Gates's Windoze crap.
b. I think that there should be TWO Debian trees in the future instead of
three: stable and unstable instead of stable, testing and unstable: i. e. the
two trees called testing and unstable should merge into one - both completely
downloadable (the latter is the new decision).
c. Regarding kernel 22.214.171.124 Linus Torvalds, Andrew Morton and all world-wide
Linux developers DID DO a definitely good job, whereas 2.6.20 and 2.6.19 were
nothing but unusable quick-shot crap that nobody appreciates nor likes.
d. I am very happy with my current solution.

P. S.: If you do not run an AMD K7 machine with a SCSI controller installed
you can even avoid using Debian minimum netinst CD images and better take
Sidux which is the most excellent Live-CD derivate that I ever met in my
