Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Another six months, another release from the Ubuntu folks. The Ubuntu 7.04 release, better known as Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, is another cutting-edge, but not bleeding-edge, release that shows what Linux is capable of on the desktop. I've been running it since the early betas, and have found that it's the best Ubuntu release yet." Read more at Newsforge. And another article, Vista vs. Ubuntu and its rebuttal.

I just installed it on my macbook and am surprised by how well it works. It did require some tweaking, but it is on apple hardware and windows required more tweaking to work.

It has been a few years since I tried linux, so the difference is really noticeable to me. Wireless networking worked out of the box, just enter my wpa password in the dialog and go. Even the special keys for adjusting volume and screen brightness worked.

For my usage all they need is an iLife competitor to catch up to osx. For the base os utilities like the file manager they seem to be better already.
