Are you referring to the testing distribution or Debian in general? A contact of mine bought an all-singing all-dancing laptop with XP or Vista preloaded, can't remember which. I had four calls the first week to reset the networking, not because the user is a newbie but because she couldn't figure out anything useful from the Win docs. I installed Deb stable for her and I haven't heard back since (nearly three months ago) :). Testing does require more maintenance if that's what you meant.
