In fact I'd argue that, if you've followed Ubuntu's Gnome desktop since Dapper, you'll find it easier to switch to Gnome on Debian than switching to KDE. But I have no data to back this up. :)

But keep in mind that GNOME2 isn't being maintained, so your time on GNOME2/debian is very limited.
it would probably be easier to switch to <GNOME2 fork> on ubuntu than switching to <GNOME2 fork> on debian
If you are happy with GNOME3, then switching to GNOME3 on ubuntu is easier than switching to GNOME3 on debian
But I was assuming that you were moving to some desktop other than GNOME3/Unity, and so I was saying that switching to KDE/XFCE on Ubuntu throws away less of the knowledge/experience/support of Ubuntu than switching to KDE/XFCE on Debian would (and both throw away far less than switching to KDE/XFCE on a rpm based distro
