If it wasn't for Ubuntu I would never be a regular linux user. From all the linux flavors I tried, it is the most user friendly and there is less fighting the OS and more work getting done. Recently I did notice that other flavors are finally looking out for the user (I'm sure they are following Ubuntu steps). I have been closely following ubuntu phone experience it looks very interesting. Today Ubuntu started a campaign on indiegogo with the very ambitious goal of $32 Million for the new Ubuntu Edge: the next generation of personal computing: smartphone and desktop PC in one state-of-the-art device.
