I'm using Debian Wheezy/Testing now, though I used to use Ubuntu. It's a 
little rough around the edges but works for me. I've heard and seen good 
things from Fedora, and looks pretty slick the times I've installed it 
on customers' computers. I tried Linux Mint and found it to be a bit of 
a hack-job, so I don't recommend it.

Ubuntu 11.04 is using Unity, which is a really weird/goofy way to 
interact with the desktop and lacks any customization. It has a "classic 
mode" that you can switch to from the login screen, but I heard they're 
removing it in 11.10, forcing people to use Unity. That's why I dumped 
it. Ubuntu 10.10 is pretty solid however, and the only reason I wouldn't 
recommend using it is because eventually it will be no longer supported 
and you'll have to upgrade and use Unity.
