All of this is true. I like the latest Debian netinstall. It gives a 2.6 kernel install with KDE desktop and gdm for base-config desktop.
.
But the real issue, that there are a large debian-based distros is the simple fact that Debian does not deliver a multimedia desktop on its install.
.
I have scsi hard disk and dual Athlon cpus. I found that there was not much decent info on a post-install directions for a multimedia setup. I faced rebuilding my kernel to get it all together.
.
This is the obvious missing road-map.

I run knoppix and mepis on my box.
