What I've been saying for a while is that Ubuntu is for people who don't
want to run Windows.  RedHat is for people who want to run Linux.  You
can sub RedHat for whatever your favorite more-minimal Linux distro is.
I tend to use RedHat because it's what my (corportate) customers are
going to tend to be using.  For my personal use, I have a Macbook pro
and an iMac for my desktop work and I use NetBSD to fill my Unix needs,
though more and more MacOS X is filling that for me.
