As far as I am aware, Ubuntu is aimed at the desktop user, but, since it
is based on Debian, there should be no major obstacles to tranforming it
into something suitable for use as a server.
Personally I wouldn't bother. I would use it on the desktop and use
something like Debian or SuSE or Mandrake or Fedora for the server.
