I run Ubuntu on all my laptop and desktops but debian (and sometimes 
centos when the application I need requires it) on my servers. I have 
really fallen in love with debian in the last year or so... my 
introduction to linux was back in the red hat 4 days, so I naturally 
stuck with the red hat / fedora / centos distros, but after ubuntu on 
my laptops and desktops that helped in forcing me to learn the debian 
style operations. So in this last year I been running all my servers on 
debian and absolutely love how clean and fast they are in comparrison. 
It feels very lean and fast, so I think I became a fan :)
