As I say, I am running Debian Squeeze.  2 instances of 3.5.13 (clients) and 2 
of 3.5.13.2 (here at home).  So far, I am very pleased with it.  

One of the two clients had never used Linux before.  So far, after about six 
months, she has hit one problem only - but it was just a setting that she 
couldn't find, although it was there and I was able to set it for her.

Alexandre's live CD is not "official" yet.  Perhaps you are using facilities 
that Alexandre does not use, so has not polished.  It is a marvellous 
facility to have given the community, but it is not fair to use it to say 
that TDE is never stable on anything.

Ubuntu and Debian appear to be the best supported (impression, not detailed 
analysis).  Have you tried either of those?  It sounds as though Wheezy and 
TDE is still not stable, so you would get better stability by sticking to 
Squeeze, though I advise using Slávek's repositories.  Mutatis mutandis, I am 
sure that the same applies to Ubuntu (Kubuntu), but I am not up on that, so 
cannot express an opinion on which version is the best compromise between 
stable and up-to-date.
