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."

I been trying several distros since 2002, and Ubuntu is the one that worked better in my desktop and laptop. Better meaning very good HW support and I guess that's one of the most important things to get more Linux desktop penetration for regular users.
I have using Ubuntu since last release and I moved for Dapper last month. For this period of about 6 months of usage I'd say that Ubuntu is very stable, easy to install new packages and very clean (with 1 CD only you can start to work).
One thing that I need to move definately to GNU/Linux is a good video editor equivalent to Adobe Premier or Pinnacle Studio to work with my home videos, only this.
