Introduction

Ubuntu is derivative of Debian and is generally aimed at newbies/n00bs/windows types. From the tag line:

Ubuntu - linux for human beings

Basically it's Debian wrapped up in nice fuzzy warm blankets that makes it really nice and easy to use :)

User Opinions

bluemonki: I run Ubuntu on my main computer and on my Apple iBook, it's so nice and shiny and Dapper Drake also supports AirportExtreme wireless gubbins which is ace.
