I'd recommend 6.06...it will be supported for longer.

Slightly new kernel. Not sure about applications.

You can use su on Ubuntu too, if you want. Just give the root user a
password. And you can always sudo -s to get to a shell.

I've not used Gnome on Ubuntu, but we have six Ubuntu 6.06 installs in
production here (two web server, two name servers, and two VMWare servers),
with a couple more coming online soon, and they have been rock solid stable.
I'm sure Etch will be too, but just FYI.
