Seconded. I put Ubuntu on my laptop after FreeBSD 5 wouldn't behave.
It's Debian-based, so it's technically sensible, and Ubuntu work VERY
hard to have stuff Just Work. I routinely recommend it to people who
want to try something else because they're bloody sick of Windows sucking.
I also recommend anyone working on the FreeBSD ports/packages system to
try Ubuntu and the Synaptic Package Manager (a nice graphical frontend
to apt). It's RIDICULOUSLY easy to use and there's little excuse for
doing any less well.
