Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This could potentially be quite big for Ubuntu and Linux in general. Canonical and the Chinese government have announced a collaboration to build a version of Ubuntu specifically for the Chinese market, which will become the reference architecture for standard operating systems in the country.

Debian is your friend... I don't know how Ubuntu takes such a stable base that is pretty flawless as far as upgrades go (I upgraded from Sarge(during testing) to Etch, to Lenny to Squeeze, and the only thing that broke was some php code I had that was obsoleted due to PHP being updated. Which of course is PHP's fault.)

I finally ended up doing a fresh install of Squeeze because it was easier to convert my system to amd64. Granted it was 'possible' to go from i386 to amd64, but just I just figured I could clean up some cruft as well.

Ubuntu.. I agree, it seems to break randomly just between normal updates.
