Ubuntu variant - for the general user that just wants things to work
Debian - for the more than a general user, and wants to work on ARMs and stuff
Arch Linux - for those willing to get a little dirty ;-)
Gentoo - for those willing to get even dirtier ;-)

...but for alternatives, please support the Haikus, Inferno, Plan 9, and other operating systems out there in the wild...new developers, publicity, testers, 'documentation engineers' and such will be most welcome to those projects as well.
