No it doesn't! I don't want the crap that is Gnome3, GDM3 and SystemD, yet if I upgrade my Squeeze system, that's exactly what they ram down users throats I want Iceape, or a similar Gecko-based internet suite, not like 4 separate programs. And Mate is Mate, not Gnome2
So no, Debian has long since stopped giving users what they want
