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."

SLED is better

I was unimpressed with Dapper, after using Ubuntu since Warty, I have switched to SLED because most things just work, like XGL was a button press away, and it detected more hardware than any other distro before it. If Ubuntu wants to stay a main player in Desktop Linux they will need to do a lot more, you shouldn't need to jump through hoops.
