Pre-Port Usability Question

My current distribution of choice is Arch Linux. Arch is too techie for
my daughter, who wants to admin her own system.
I used jigdo to download all 14 CD images for "Sarge".
I backed up her /home/* directory to CD and began the install last
night. I'm puzzled.
Default Kernel still in the 2.4 series?
An old Gnome?
An old KDE?
In fact, most of the packages are behind the times, some by a little,
some by a lot.
I didn't expect this in a release hot off of the presses.
The package system on the Debian website still shows KDE 3.3.2 as the
version of choice. I didn't see an option to upgrade to a newer version
either in testing, unstable, or stable.
I have NO INTENTION of flame-baiting, or other immature behavior. I do
have genuine puzzlement as to why the old stuff instead of fresh stuff.
Would the Debian community please respond or elighten me?
