So what's up guys, linux lover here (also learner though).

So what distros do you use like? whats do you use for servers?

I've tried most of the popular desktop environments and distros but I like ubuntu with xfce, i like it's simplicity and at the same time depth of customization. As you can imagine i like ubuntu for servers, i've never needed anything else but learning a more serious distro like centos is definitely on my to do list.

I really like the CentOS, Tails, and Kali. that's about all I can think of from the top of my head.

"From the perspective of others I am part of the world, but when I observe the world from my perspective I am nowhere to be found. To observe is to create perspective. I can never cease to be the point of origin from my perspective. I observe that which is not myself. This is the first principle to find." - Ergo Proxy

Honestly, (and sadly I suppose), the only time I use a certain Linux distro is when I need to penetrate my neighbor's wi-fi. Yes, I'm a cheap-o like that, haha. Just kidding :D.

I use Linux back when I was in college (since it's required) and of all the distros I've used, Ubuntu is the closest to Windows. And since it's the closest, it's really not that hard to use it. But then I always struggle with compatibility issues since most of the applications I use are Windows-based.

Linux Mint - User friendly for the most part, and a solid distro for newcomers.
Antegros - When ya just can't be fucked going through the archlinux install
Archlinux - When ya can be fucked going through the archlinux install
Debian - Stability
Elementaryos - When you wanna look like a macfag but be like a linuxfag.

I rate CentOS and Debian, they're both pretty fantastic for servers.

I like Ubuntu for Desktops though, I fall in love with it over and over again!

ArchLinux. I can keep it as minimal as I want (I'm not running a desktop manager, just Openbox as my window manager).

I also like debian sid, and #! was the shit (bunsenlabs is it's successor and it's pretty cool too). For servers I like debian, though centos looks pretty stable.

I use Ubuntu 15.04 for my server, but I am thinking of switching to Centos 6 in a couple weeks.

Using Arch with a MATE UI here. It's a process to setup, but I like it.

I would have to say the best just because of pure flexibility is arch linux and ive used it the longest. It seems hard to set up but really is not.

Ubuntu is the most friendly distro imo, it should work fine for people trying their first linux. 

Red Hat was my first :^)

Friendly != good. Friendly = bloatware, spyware, and slow runtime.

Well no shit you're going to have compatibility issues. You're running software that's objectively not supposed to be ran. It doesn't matter if you're on Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, or fucking LTS Arch, you're going to have a bad time running Win32 apps. Period the end.

Also no one gives two fucking shits about you "penetrating" your neighbor's wifi with air-crack.

Debian for mostly everything. For my home computer and my servers. Although I'm using Windows 8.1 on my work laptop.
