I've been trying to find a flavor thats just right for me and was thinking about trying out Debian. Just wondering if anyone has anything good/bad to say about it.

Linux is Linux.... every distribution is different, but very simmilar to another one..... find the one you like the best

Well... debian has a good package manager (dpkg) and it won't be so difficult to install and configure if you have some experience.

I've got a macBook and the first thing to do was install my loved debian Sid.
Although it works quite well, sometimes you will have to compile some modules, easy done with module-assistain package.

If its about finding "the one" that is right for you... good luck, hard to do, some people get lucky though.

I kept distro hopping until I decided to give gentoo a crack... build your system from the kernel up, custom to your needs, down to every detail, with gentoo as the skeleton. Ive run gentoo for the last year... only use other distro's when helping out buddies or at work now.

And as an added bonus, you learn a TON about linux operation when nothing works till you make it

I installed Debian a few weeks ago. It's great, I'd definitely go for it if I were you.

I just installed Debian about a week ago and could not be happier. I have a friend who runs a database/business server running Debian. So that suggests to me that its both relatively secure, easy to handle and powerful. Keep in mind that this friend knows several languages, holds an as in programing/mathematics. I say this not to brag for him or that I know him, but merely to put forth that I respect his opinion and skill. As far as the installation, EASIER then you can believe ( my first try at running Linux ) with this automated (no CD needed ) web install. Check it out. You don`t have to know squat about Linux to install with this prog.

PS. You have the option to install almost any Linux distribution with this 3.67mb program.
