    I want to try Gentoo next.

    @Jakuho I've heard high praises for Arch Linux. What's your draw to it?

    @byogdc Probably the minimalist side.

    Mine would be Arch for desktop and Debian/CentOS for server (depending on whatever I want). I've been eyeballing BSD for some time, though.

    Depends on the project.
    I personally love Alpine for its minimalism and configurability. Gentoo is similar but more of a hassle to set up.
    And if I really don't care about user experience (like on a server) I would probably go with Debian.

    I think arch is a great compromise for configurability and ease of use and setup.

    Blackarch. Even the installer is awesome.

    I'm really going out on a limb here but I like Ubuntu as my main Linux distro 🙊
    It's fairly simple and has everything I need. But then again, maybe I don't need that much lol

    Elementary OS.

    The only nice, clean, coherent DE out there. Also: stable as fuck.

    Yes, I know that you can install Pantheon on any distro but good luck running and setting it as Elementary does.

    @sergiolarosa89 Elementary does have a beautiful as hell UI. Their recent update is great.

    POP_OS. It's Ubuntu but prettier, without the shit and designed for developers

    Gentoo since 2003.

    Tried many, none was good enough to not miss Gentoo rather quickly.

    @Root from Mint to Gentoo is a rather big step, though! 🤔

    Kubuntu (Arc theme) and Ubuntu Server

    @Yamakuzure it is indeed. I'm a little worried.

    For servers I tend to prefer Ubuntu Server.
    For workstations, Arch without a second thought.
    For containers and VM's (servers) usually a choice between Ubuntu (stability) and Arch (usability and fast-paced updates) depending on what works best. I ended up preferring Arch for both file- and DNS-servers. The configuration for them is just so much easier in Arch.

    Usually I end up resorting to these two. For workstations, Arch without second thought. For anything legacy, Bodhi. For servers, Ubuntu unless Arch is easier to deploy. For Raspberry Pi's, Raspbian Lite.
