Functional desktop

Is the functional deskopt of knoppix common to KDE? Dropline-Gnome by default is much less functinal than it.

The "start" menu in Knoppix has "find files", "run command", "log out" and multiple function menu items.

Does Debian and KDE have anywhere close to the functionality and items as Knoppix? I understand I can configure as much as I want but I want a distro that does the initial configuration for me. I would much rather spend my time configuring important items such as VPN, Samba, FTP, WWW and IPTables than desktop itemss.

If a pretty KDE desktop by default is what you want I in a distro I suggest you look into Mandrake. The current stable Debian release isn't very up to date on desktop packages.
