Hi Guðmundur

 Thank god for cut'n paste, I wouldn't know how to write your name else!

Well, I would recommend Potato, and then add:

deb http://spidermonkey.helixcode.com/distributions/debian unstable main

to /etc/apt/sources.list, and voila, you have Potato with Helix-GNOME.
I've used it for a month now, and it's no problem at all!

Don't worry about using unstable stuff on Potato, it works allright.
