It all comes down to preference. For Linux I used to be a dedicated Slackware user but years ago I switched to Arch after I decided I'd deal with systemd in exchange for their very large package repo. I like my Linux installs very barebone - I dislike having my Desktop Environment decisions being made for me regardless of if I can change it, along with other things I notice in distros that are designed in a friendlier fashion.

 

I'm also a FreeBSD and OpenBSD user. Back when Chameleon was the standard bootloader I added support for chainloading FreeBSD and OpenBSD but with Clover I've only gotten it to chainload FreeBSD.

openSUSE all the way! Stability, performance, customization, no weird changes and constant broken software

I ditched Debian based distros long ago and I havent regretted it a single time.

In reality I don't use Linux very much at all, even if I have some distribution always installed, mostly Linux Mint.

For many years my favourite operating system was OS X, but after Yosemite I began to like it less and less.

Now my main OS is Windows 10. Believe it or not Microsoft is investing a lot on Windows 10, making it a very good OS
