Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Mark Shuttleworth is the founder of Thawte, the first certification authority to sell public SSL certificates. After selling Thawte to Verisign, Mark moved on to training as an astronaut in Russia and visiting space. Once he got back he founded Ubuntu, the leading GNU/Linux distribution. He agreed on releasing a quick interview to Free Software Magazine." One of the more interesting quotes: "With Ubuntu, it's still too early to say we've been successful. My personal goal is to make the distro sustainable - then there will be a team that pays its own way and can focus on producing the best free software desktop on the planet without my interference!"

Ubuntu is not going to "beat" vista, nor is SuSE or Fedora, and not because windows is superior (i do not think it is) but because of the fact that most people don't care. They will use whatever the vendor has installed on their computer and be happy with that. And lets face it, most vendors are not about to switch to linux as the default OS.
