I'm the only Debian/KDE person here?? :whoa:

I guess that's why Linux is awesome.

(My second distro would be Arch...but its suuuper close to being No.1)

 

Edit:

Debian because it's what I learned on, so I just never gave it up.  KDE because I don't like pretending I'm using a Mac (lol gnome).

 

Arch because it's configurable as heck.  No one person's Arch install is the same as anothers :)

I'm a fan of centOS and RH based distros and primarily use KDE (I can't stand the latest iterations of gnome) when I can. Since I see a lot RH/CentOS at work I am just more used to it over the others. That being said if I was going to use a distro for my own personal use I would definitely go with Linux Mint, my experience with it has been very positive.

I like Manjaro Linux, it's basically just Arch Linux for noobs. Easier installation, and some more GUI bits, still get the rolling updates which is amazing. I like Cinnamon for my DE because it's pretty, like Unity. BUT has a lower resource cost and more customization Luke KDE of xcfe.

Never actually heard of Manjaro but it looks decent! I might give it a whirl tomorrow if I get the time.
