Ubuntu is definitely the end-user desktop-focused distro, which is why it has two video players, but you have to install traceroute with apt-get. :-)

It definitely seems to play well in a Windows environment, which is what I have at the office, but still can get down and dirty when, say, developing for my webservers. I'll try OpenSUSE on a desktop and see if it picks up where Ubuntu leaves off. (And I would definitely NOT consider Ubuntu Server on any production-related.)
