I use debian from knoppix in productive environment (school, but they want to 
work with it :-) ) and it works just great ...

It IS an debian ...

Perhaps try doing an dist-upgrade to stable ... ("upgrade? more a downgrade! 

Then you really have only an debian system !

I never experienced any problems, except with buggy memory ...

And the "serious" for users problems are that there is no ext3/reiserfs 
support yet and that is worked on ...
