as a system administrator i think "Debian squeeze" is a great 
distribution to run my servers.

as an artist working with multimedia content, i would rather go with 
something more "experimental", namely "Debian wheezy" (aka "testing").
in reality i usually run "Debian wheezy/sid" (aka "testing/unstable"), 
but then i'm doing debian development and the like (so this might be a 
bit too "hot" for ordinary users)

wheezy usually has up-to-data packages, e.g. you get Pd-0.43.1

note however, that since testing is a moving target, you might get 
masses of updates every other week.
