Usually, Debian is better known as a good server than a good
workstation.  I used it for both, on many different setting including
a not physically reachable server that hosts many differents groups, a
development server, a web/imap/mailing list server, a login server,
embedded prototype and as developper workstation, on x86, powerpc and
ARM, and they all work very well and were very easy to maintain (even
by a windows sysadmin with a little help to start up). However, YMMV
