If you look for a stable and multi-desktop environement installable debian distro, dont search anymore. Download sparky MINIMAL (1GB) and update the installer from the live system. After install reboot & start Sparky "APTus". You will find the WORLD!! :) (this app update ALL, install and remove software ecc...ecc..)
Stable & with all the option to configure the Desktop and the System.

Great for older Hardware! Installed it on an Netbook from 2009 without any problems. Performs like in 2009 ;-)
