    Unity is the reason I moved away from Ubuntu. Have used openbox+debian for a while and then moved to Mint KDE. KDE is an awesome environment if you are a fan of keyboard shortcuts. KDE + Emacs turned me into a Keyboard Ninja.

    i3wm + [Arch, Centos, RHEL] depending on home/work.

    Moved from Arch a couple years ago to Linux Mint. I had ran the same Arch install for years & the install lasted longer than the original hard drive it was running on. That's a large part as to why I like rolling release distros. But, I didn't have the time or maybe desire to continue to maintain Arch. That's why I moved to Mint w/LTS. In the last week or so I got the itch to try some distros and landed on Manjaro w/KDE install. It's perfect for me and my needs right now. Uses pacman which I'm used to using and the devs have done a very nice job offering a stable rolling release distro. The packages aren't updated as frequently as on Arch so this may be a pro or con depending on your needs. For me it's perfect.

    I moved from Linux and have been using FreeBSD for the past 12 years or so.

    I have 5 laptops running it and 1 running OpenBSD, with a tutorial a how to set up a FreeBSD desktop from scratch on my site as the vanilla installation only includes the base system and terminal with no X or 3rd party programs.

    Can you please share the link to the tutorial.

    Sure, I just didn't want to spam my site:

    http://trihexagonal.org

    It's written with a target audience of someone who has never used UNIX or the commandline in mind and I attempt to explain the procedure from beginning to end so that a person who has only used Windows should be able to set up a fully functional FreeBSD desktop from scratch complete with all the security and system settings.

    My pleasure. I learned to set it up years ago from a tutorial someone else wrote and it's my way of giving back to the community.

    FreeBSD News has an article that links to the tutorial where I've posted a copy at the FreeBSD forums and more people are likely to see it.

    I used to install both windows and linux on my laptop and switch between. I like ubuntu, gnome instead of kde.

    After the latest windows version, i have problem installing both. Not sure dual boot issues have been solved or not.

    I switched to arch after my windows install broke, and I discovered that installing arch is easier than installing windows on an NVME ssd.

    I run Debian (squeeze?) on a 2009 Mac Mini at home as my main music source. It runs Spotify (headless via xvfb) that outputs via pulse to optical spdif to the DAC, and MPD for local file playback (from the NAS) via alsa to USB to DAC. This because Pulse is locked in resolution (currently set to 16/44.1) and via alsa I can play HD tracks in full resolution. I could try to strip out pulse and run Spotify via alsa, but I am quite certain I will break the entire setup in the process.

    Only drawback of this setup is I have to switch the DAC from optical to USB when I switch from Spotify to MPD.

    This Mac Mini replaced a BeagleBone Black running debian + MPD after I signed up to Spotify. (Volumio on the BBB supports Spotify Connect, but does not support that with gapless playback, a deal breaker for me, similar to the Chromecast Audio which also supports Spotify Connect, but not gapless).

    Oh yeah, I also run Ubuntu 16.1 LTS on my main machine (a laptop).

    My BBB was called Bonzo (after John Bonham), I had a second BBB to experiment with called Ziggy, my CCA was called Jimi and my current Debian Mac Mini is called Miles.

    I run Manjaro (was on arch before)
    Suspend doesn't work and gnome never hit 60fps.
    But everything else mostly works.
