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.

There's a difference between an OS designed for a server with a UI tacked on and an OS designed from the ground up to be a desktop system. From the progress reports - Haiku seems to be moving forward in terms of "desktop readiness" much more quickly than the various Linux distributions. I'd say the only exception would be hardware support, and once they have a stable R1 release - that will probably get attacked pretty heavily. Remember, Haiku isn't restricted by the GPL. That's going to give them a lot of potential driver sources they might otherwise not enjoy.
