Firstly it's not unix based, it's BSD, as I recall

Sentence number one of the BSD wiki page disagrees with your distinction.

It's also a little impish of you to imply that being *nix 'based' somehow isn't 'Linux enough' for developers, as if people choose Linux simply by virtue of "being" Linux.

ubuntu is a nice starter linux... and if you want it can be a permmy as well... I am sticking to ubuntu just because I am used to it (though I do use other distros on occasions ) ubuntu is easy to use ...kind of.... the basic computer user will have little trouble doing their thing after a few hours of playing around...

an more advanced computer user will go through hell in order to do a simple task
(by simple I mean it should be easy if you know what you are looking for ) i find it easier on ubuntu to do advanced tasks in terminal then using the GUI ubuntu could be up there with user friendly ... but it still has to work out a few kinks to get up to scratch and be 100% user friendly VIA GUI

I've always said that. That's probably why you see so many variants based on it. It's a real nice base.
