Anyone who knows something about computer science knows professor Donald Knuth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Knuth) - he is more or less a mythical figure in the world of CS.

Here's a recent interview (http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=1193856) with him. He mentions that he's using Ubuntu:

I currently use Ubuntu Linux, on a standalone laptop—it has no Internet connection. I occasionally carry flash memory drives between this machine and the Macs that I use for network surfing and graphics; but I trust my family jewels only to Linux. Incidentally, with Linux I much prefer the keyboard focus that I can get with classic FVWM to the GNOME and KDE environments that other people seem to like better. To each his own.
