Hello Carlos,
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 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 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.

Yours Sincerely

A still very happy Debian user called Uwe from Germany

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 
Psssst! Schon vom neuen GMX MultiMessenger gehört?
