Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical's Ubuntu 6.06 LTS is an excellent Linux-based operating system - so excellent, in fact, that it not only earned eWEEK Labs' Analyst's Choice designation but has also become our clear favorite among Linux desktop distributions. This latest Ubuntu release, which became available in June, has won our ardor with a tight focus on desktop usability; an extremely active, helpful and organized user community; and a software installation and management framework that's unsurpassed on any OS platform."

Ubuntu is a nice distro

@arctic: Just so you know you can use Debian repos with Ubuntu, they just aren't supported and MAY break your system if used incorrectly.

@ctglahn: you have to run your editor as root to edit system files (type "sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf")

I think dapper is quite impressive. It brings linux to the massess. It is not bloated like Fedora/Suse. It is simple and easy to use for beginners, but has some really nice features for advanced users and it is well supported. I can definately understand why it is coonsidered, by some, to be the #1 distro available.

I like it, but if you don't then don't use it.
