Currently I use Arch based Linux and BSD on computers, and Debian based Linux on Rpi. Also playing with Arch and Manjaro on Rpi with other SDcards. And curious to try a Beaglebone board with BSD in the future. QubesOS is too heavy for my hardware, but I am curious to try Gentoo and Gentoo derivates as well.

These top distro articles at least from what I have seen seem to just be trying to make people happy. They usually just list distros that are popular.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
