Linspire "Freespire, the free as in beer version of the Linspire Linux distribution, this month released Freespire 2.0, the first version of the operating system based on the popular Ubuntu distribution, and the first to contain proprietary codecs and drivers. Despite its attractive appearance, it left me with mixed feelings."

Not hard to notice ubuntu has the lead. In terms of package management, high availability repo servers, the abundance of packages,easy multimedia,huge community and so on. There's only enough room for the more enthusiast distros like debian,slackware,fedora,gentoo and arch. As an allround userfriendly distro ubuntu still has to be beaten imho.
