I find that Debian Stable does provide a reliable desktop long term.  
I administer 3 desktops and a laptop where that is the case.  Also, 
tinkerers don't keep breaking things in Debian Stable: they don't get 
the chance.  Basically, Stable gets left alone, apart from major 
bugs, security updates and updates to things like virus databases 
(which go out of date rather fast).

It would be interesting to know what your current problem is.  You 
only vaguely mention that it is something to do with printing.
