Bad Ubuntu.svg
Ubuntu was an excellent user-friendly operating system based on Debian GNU/Linux, but has recently started becoming very corporate and playing some dirty corporate tricks like installing spyware and preventing users from having control over what's installed and what's not. We've been using Debian on our servers, but were using Ubuntu on our desktops, but have changed over to Linux Mint now. For servers Debian is definitely preferable unless you're running software that has been compiled for a specific Ubuntu release, because Debian is far better maintained even though the release cycle is not regular.
