Reads like you have it all worked out, what seems to be your problem
again? New features?

The new features of Mozilla are firefox [which does use java, but you
have to load it, this reduces bloat in the program] and thunderbird, you
have "well defined packages" another feature, as many desktop
environments, another feature, and a lot of features new and old in KDE
and Gnome, should you wish to use them. You don't, you're choice and a
good one for you? I cannot see why Sarge is the worst distro? But if
so.......... there are others, Linux and BSD and such, and even some
that are worse and cost more.

Choice is yours, you own it.
