Mac OS X is the best *nix OS for the MacBook / MacBook Pro and Mac desktops as well.

DesktopBSD is suitable for the other laptops as it aims at being a stable and powerful operating system for desktop users, combines the stability of FreeBSD, the usability and functionality of KDE and the simplicity of specially developed software to provide a system that's easy to use and install.

DesktopBSD can run on any decent i386-, AMD64- or EM64T-based computer. We recommend at least 6 GB of disk space and 256 MB memory for installation. For more information visit http://www.desktopbsd.net

Ubuntu is also great for Desktop Use and it is a Linux Distro. While talking about Linux Distro's CentOS is also great with enterprise features based on Red Hat.

I presonally use CentOS, Ubuntu, and FreeBSD as Desktop OS in my work place coz they all are stable and relaible.

    [Cosmic37]: Permissions are interesting earthlings. Did nature determine who gives permission and who asks permission. Who was the first to get permission? Are you not related to them as one big earthling family?
    [karlgoethebier]: Cojones! We need cojones!
    [karlgoethebier]: Ouch! Permissions! We need permissions!
    [BarApp]: I can not use modules. I gain temporary access and still can not use modules.
