Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu has come under a decent amount of flack over the past few months, particularly over their decision to use the 'Dash Search' to return results from Amazon by default in their most recent release.

Sorry dude, but I used linux-only at home and work for 7 freaking years. But then one day I was really really pissed of cuz kdenlive crashed on me every 2min and I needed to edit a video. Since I had a macbook (but never used OSX, I had Ubuntu installed on it) I decided to give OSX a try, and in a few minutes my video was very nicely edited under iMovie. Then I tried Garage Band and Logic Pro, and my home-studio audio quality improved 1000%, this day on I never used Linux as a desktop anymore.

I used mostly Debian and Ubuntu, but tried 'em all. What I think is exactly the opposite. I'm pretty sure you never used OSX for more than a few minutes. Try it for 2 months as a desktop alternative and THEN you can give a serious opinion about it.

Btw I still use Linux/Ubuntu/Debian at work. For some things, it's the best out there (specially the server side). But as a desktop solution, for me, it sucks compared to OSX.

iMovie has its own issues... http://eugenia.queru.com/2009/04/11/stay-the-fuck-away-from-imovief...
(that said, it's probably better than anything available on Linux; but there are better choices, like Sony Vegas on Windows)
