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."

Dumbed down too much

I had and still have high hopes, but the control panels are simply too simple. Many common configuration options are just not possible without diving into text files somewhere. I still have not found them all.

Mandriva seems to have a better balance between ease-of-use and configurability. Perhaps the next version of Ubuntu...?
