Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu MadPenguin takes a look at Flight 5 of Ubuntu Dapper, and concludes: "All in all, Ubuntu 6.06 is gearing up to be quite an impressive release. Granted, I saw some bugs during my stay on the distribution, but can I really complain? It's not a full release, so it deserves some breathing room. Considering some of the horribly authored software I've looked at over the years, I feel that Ubuntu in pre-release form is more stable than other distros when they reach final release status. It's not quite in the league of Slackware and Red Hat/Fedora in that respect yet, but it's surely getting there in a hurry."

I think Ubuntu is great, it makes the transition from MS to Linux less painful in a classy sort of way.
But not everyone needs it, and this is based in the personal needs of the user. Everything is subjective.

Me? I use Debian Sarge, minimal install, no eyecandy, all business. Ion3 is perfect for my PII 266, but it took me several years to get to this point. I also started with KDE and Gnome 1.4, until finally, i realized that beauty doesn't do crap for me, the only thing that matters is SPEED. I want something fast, easy to install apps, to upgrade, some wm that doesn't get in my way, i need to to get the job done, period. I don't need gdesklets or icons or wallpapers, nor waste my time with games, i need to move, move, with the ancient hardware i got.

But then again, my taste is based on my needs. ;)
