Debian stable on my desktop (GNOME 3.38) and my Thinkpad R52 (MATE). EndeavourOS on my modern laptop partially so I don’t have to manually deal with nvidia driver fuckery and partly because GNOME 40+ is infinitely better with a touchpad than any other DE. I particularly like Debian and Endeavour because I dodge the commercial influence and weird decisions which hit Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, etc. As much as I love Fedora and several Ubuntu-based distros, getting out of that game feels great.

I’m a frequent hopper that’s trying to slow down. I’m only letting myself change things out on my modern laptop for now so I hopefully don’t uproot all my machines every time I have a passing interest in something else. I’ve recently embraced the flatpak future, so I’m hoping a solid Debian system with flatpaks for the user-facing stuff I need up to date will keep me satisfied. It’s going well so far.

I use Debian Testing almost everywhere. It’s as comfortable for me as Ubuntu but I never have to upgrade.

I just recently migrated from Kubuntu to Nix OS. While I still don’t have a full understanding of what I’m doing, I’m having a positive experience overall and have no regrets.

I use Ubuntu. Previously I used Debian. Edit: Most downvoted. Why? Let’s get some discussion going :)

Mostly Gentoo, sometimes Debian. I’m thinking of installing Qubes OS, but first I need to figure out whether my device fulfills its requirements.

I tried Gentoo because I like the idea of it, but couldn’t get it properly installed/setup. There was nothing exotic about the hardware, but something or other failed a build step and I eventually gave up.

May I ask what failed a build step for you? (Most likely I can’t give you any advice, as I only got into Gentoo a few months ago, but I’m still interested in knowing.)

I actually had some trouble with installing Gentoo myself, though it didn’t fail any builds for me. I needed full-disk encryption. I followed this guide (except for the part about configuring the kernel; I’m using the pre-configured distribution kernel for now), but it didn’t work. On boot, Gentoo would throw an error message about “Failed to find LUKS device”, then exit to the fallback shell. Searching the message gave me this forum thread, I tried several of the things that thread says to. What finally made it work is dracut --force -H --kver <gentoo-kernel-bin-version>. I need to re-run this command every time I upgrade the kernel to a new version so that the new version works.

I can’t remember now, sorry. It was BC (“before Covid”), so not recent.

I’ve been using Xubuntu for years, no complaints.

ArcoLinux, an easy-to-install and fun Arch-based rolling GNU/Linux distribution with freedom of choice… of everything. I have been using Linux Mint in the past, too.

Fedora on desktop and laptops. It’s really good, and breakage is incredibly rare.

Fedora or CentOS on servers. Recently I’ve been testing Arch for access to rawer software, and I’d like to figure out how to do a Gentoo binary distribution.
