I use Debian stable, and know it and the tools very well.  Knowing the 
tools , having a local mirorr, is as important as what flavor I use.

That said, one interesting OS I am testing is Open Indiana, one of the 
successors to Open Solaris. The default DE is Gnome2, but kde3.5.10 is 
available. 

I would test OpenBSD and TDE when available. 

Its about the apps not the desktop :-)
