for desktop usage, Ubuntu clearly has the advantage (or disadvantage as it were) of available drivers which are less than optimal license or binary blobs.

for server usage, Ubuntu has the advantage of openssl

as for having issues... I run into issues regardless of which OS, Linux or not and I don't see that any Linux is all that radically different.
