Unfortunately both SUSE and Fedora had issues with my hardware. Debian however had only a minor issue with my CD-drive but the installation went without a hitch !
Debian itself is quite a stable operating system. It does not eat as many resources when idle, unlike some of the popular distributions out there. One of the most promising feature of Debian is its package management system. It lists over 25 000 software packages for use with Debian and it takes away the guesswork in installing those packages.
