Thanks to Equinox.

I really like it tbh, it can be a hassle sometimes since I'm stupid ;w;

Well you've gotten much further than any other die hard winfan, good on you, mate.

Debian, just to play around with. My main OS is Win10 Pro, and since it comes with hyper-v, I figure it makes more sense to set it up as a VM. That way I can just set up a checkpoint, so if I really boink things up, I can go back to a working version quickly. Plus, I'm lazy and hate to wait for my PC to reboot.

I used to run EOS but it wasn't my thing, what features do you like about it?

Call me odd, but I like the interface. I'm not a Mac fan, but for some odd reason the interface is really clean, and if I have the dock hidden it just looks really nice. Overall everything is to my taste, and for the most part it runs well enough to use at school during the week.

Well, a tonne of steam titles support linux, and if a game has directx9 support, WINE will usually run it flawlessly

Yeah, I recently read they hit a bit of a milestone on how many titles are supported on Linux now. Though some of the games I actively play take advantage of Dx11. I'll stick around with Windows a bit longer, perhaps I may dual boot and have Windows for just video games, and Linux for the rest of everything.

Arch on my laptop right now because I like the package system and user repos.
wangblows 8 on my desktop because of >muh games
I've been thinking of selling the desktop though, trying to live lighter.

I run ArchLinux on my main computer and on my laptop. When I want to play games that aren't on Steam (visual novels, newer games, etc ,etc) I just boot my laptop to windows and stream it to my main PC.

Switched to Fedora from Antergos(Arch) because I was getting breackage. Just as easy to use, has FDE one tick at install, has SELinux by default without having to mess with things, and runs gr8. dnf + fedorafusion > pacman + aur for me. delta rpms are amazing.

I use Gentoo on my desktop and server because I really like playing around with my system and the idea of compiling everything with only the things I need through the use of cflags and useflags is very appealing to me. I also put slackware on my laptop because I needed something to just toss on there and I didn't feel like installing Gentoo on it and also the idea of a distro that didn't resolve dependencies sounded interesting and like quite the learning experience. Well lets just say that after a system upgrade and removing dbus as I shouldn't really need that when I use a wm only setup, xorg wouldn't start and I am unable to connect to wireless over wpa_supplicant to re-download dbus (also I'm too lazy to put the package on a USB stick or when I did it was a bad USB stick and it corrupted the packages and I didn't feel like trying again) so that's Slackware. I have used Arch Linux as my main os for 2 years or so in the past but left because I found Gentoo to be more fun and offered me more choices as far as lower level interfaces went (systemd). I put Gentoo on my old machine experimentally after hearing the /g/ meme, but found it to be actually a joy to use and ended up using the experimental machine as my desktop for awhile if that says anything. Anyway that's Linux for you.

Arch as it is the one I feel more comfortable with. 3 years and going, everything is easy to install and AUR rocks.

Arch. I've used Ubuntu, Fedora and a number of other distros, but i felt in love with Arch. Arch for me is the true "free as in freedom". Fedora, Ubuntu and some other famous distros are nice and user friendly, but so is Arch after some quick configuration.
   I love its wiki and user repository, it is just great. You make of the system what and only what you want, it is pure.

Also, this

It's been almost one semester since I switched to Arch and it's probably the best distro I've ever used. The installation is not as hard as people say, but the configuration takes some time.
Before Arch, I used Xubuntu after some failed experiences with Debian. It just worked.

I'm using Ubuntu for my servers. I have already tried Ubuntu Desktop and Linux Mint. I installed it on my laptop. They're fine but I uninstalled it because for no reason. Lately I discovered this DeepIn Linux and soon I'll try it. :3

On my main development rig I've got the SSD on Ubuntu 16.04 with Gnome 3.18, and kernel 4.2.x
and on the 1TB WD Blue has Debian 9.

On my backup rig has Ubuntu 15.10 with Gnome 3.18.

On my chromebook is Ubuntu 14.04LTS with Gnome 3.14

On the server that's at the house is Debian 8.2.

On my mail server: Debian 8.1.x

On my main hosting server: Debian 8.1.x

On the load balancing servers: Debian 8.1.x

Why do I use linux? Well I like to have more control over my OS then Winblows or Mactoss.

Just recently switched to Void Linux on my Thinkpad and I must say that I'm kinda in love with it. :3 It runs smooth, comes with no bloat, is rolling like Arch Linux and has all the packages I need.

On servers I'm still using Alpine Linux.

I use Kubuntu because I'm a recovering Windows user, and Kubuntu is pretty much as close as you can get to Windows with Linux (in terms of just-werks-ness and UI).

Arch on laptop, Arch on server. Arch is love, Arch is life.
