I love Debian for what it stands for and it's stability over other distro's. The downside is that you're sometimes stuck with older versions which can lead to incompatibilities with some newer software. If you stick with the default repositories this isn't a problem but when you start compiling stuff from source and run into higher requirements this can be problematic. Sometimes there can be small bugs that take longer to fix or make their way into the release cycle. Sometimes, this these are fixed in newer versions in Testing or Sid but it takes time for it to end up in Stable. Community support isn't bad, but compared to Ubuntu or Mint forums, it is somewhat less. Dare I say the Debian followers tend to be airy, a bit arrogant, and often expect newcomers to have a level of understanding of Linux that can't be expected from a newcomer. This may scare off some Debian/Linux newbies.
