That's where Ubuntu comes in.

I didn't choose Ubuntu - the market chose it for me.  I waited until 
there was one unquestionable leader among the various distros, and today 
Ubuntu by itself holds more than 30% of all desktop Linux installs.

Devs who target Ubuntu should find that Mint works well too, which is 
the second most popular distro.

And with those comes compatibility with Debian, also among the distro 
leaders.

There are many good reasons to spend time with the Red Hat/Fedora family 
as well, but if a dev has just one test machine to test on and is making 
more consumer-oriented apps than enterprise apps, Ubuntu is a clear choice.
