1. the community
2. the ideology (humanity towards others - I love it)
3. mark shuttleworth
4. free shipit (I believe it played a considerable role in making ubuntu no 1)

Things like presentation (i.e., the LiveCD integrated with the install CD), preinstalled software, and the minor customizations Canonical threw in there altogether make Ubuntu unique compared to other operating systems (be they Unix-based or not). Ideologically, Ubuntu tries to combine free software with user-friendliness to the extent possible.
