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."

"We'd like to see Ubuntu begin shipping Red Hat's display configuration tool—not only would Red Hat's tool fit in well with the rest of Ubuntu's configuration utilities, but it is open source and available for the taking."

I like this thinking.

GUI tools (i.e. "control panels") for desktop configuration, dpkg-reconfigure for configuring servers (that is, server daemon programs).
