Yes, that is true, servers and desktops have very different needs.

The Debian Stable releases, such as Lenny, are surely meant for servers
and such, with much too heavy an emphasis on security and stability for
our purposes - hence their very long, very careful, release cycle.

If you install Debian as a music system, then Sid - which is the
rolling, Unstable, up-to-date version - plus suitable multimedia
repositories - is probably the best flavour to use.

That has been my choice, but there are many other valid and useful
choices out there - that is the beauty of Free software.
