I'm not saying, that you cannot use debian for desktop work - I'm using sarge 
at the moment in order to write this mail.
Al I'm trying to say is, that debian is not "primarily intended" for  desktop 
Debian claims to be an "universal operating system" - by that, it can be used 
for desktop work. But it was never a principal of debian to create releases 
that are intended for desktop work, only, or that are desktop centeric, like 
SuSE or Readhat are doing. 
By that, compromises have to be made.
