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."

If you are running a broadcom chipset and were using ndiswrapper, you simply have to blacklist the bcm43xx module in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklists

The presence of the native driver will foil your ndiswrapper attempts. It's good that they are pushing for native drivers, but most people still seem to like the ndiswrapper method with that chipset.

See this thread on the Ubuntu forums for more info, and a nice script that does everything necessary including setting up ndiswrapper.
