I would add that Ubuntu is user friendly only when you live within its 
boundaries.  For serious work I prefer Slackware, even with the 
absence of some Gnome libraries (and the Gnome gui itself of course 
but that is no great loss. ) In the "Debian world" I would prefer to 
either use Debian proper or else install Knoppix to  disk.
