One pretty decent "Desktop Linux" based on Debian is Libranet;

<http://www.libranet.com/download.html>. 

The past version is always free, with the current version being the "Flagship
Editon". A novice user will find the kernel rather current, and the installer
very easy to use. It also has all the GUI wizards, "desktop" users tend to
like.

URL to a comparison between the commerical and past version;

<http://www.libranet.com/classic_comparison.html>

All one needs to do is change the sources list to Debian Testing/Unstable to get
the missing apps that are in the current Flagship Edition. So, one can have the
best of both worlds...

History is curious stuff
	You'd think by now we had enough
Yet the fact remains I fear
	They make more of it every year.
