I would recommend against Etch/testing. It is a developer
release. That said many people use it without too many serious
problems. Consider the Debian based Ubuntu instead. Ubuntu with Gnome
is one of the better desktop systems (of any OS) I have ever used.

The only problem I had with Ubuntu is that Gnome is a real pig on my
spare P3 1GHz, 512MB ram, rage128 system. I suspect that the Gnome in
Etch is no better.
