We use Ubuntu at work. It's pretty OK.

But I find I have to do less configuration to make things do what I want them to on OpenBSD than on Ubuntu (just because the Debian people like to futz with things so much... why can't Tomcat 5.5 servlets make socket connections by default? If Tomcat is compromised, sockets are probably one of the lesser of your concerns.)
