What linux distro are you using?

A few years ago I removed windows for ubuntu from my laptop and never looked back. I tried linux mint recently and now feel the itch to try something new. Any suggestions?

LM -> Arch -> Fedora -> Ubuntu -> Debian

Minimalist distros, Alpine for docker/VMs, OpenWrt for routers, Arch for everything else

Does it matter which distro to use?

Everybody has their own small preferences here and there - I guess that's why we're all using linux, right?

Debian 9 64 bit

Ubuntu is Debian. Linux Mint is Debian. I was quite surprised when the Debian founder Ian Murdock died of strange circumstances three years ago and stopped using Debian, but ever since Chester Bennington of Linkin Park also died in similar fashion, I am back using Debian since version nine because I made my mother and aunt pledge my corpse to be as a cadaver to Medical, Treatment Education and Research Act of the Singapore Constitution. I rather save lives than die of drug addiction, I rather have my body opened up machiam open source at a surgical table than have my own body hung from a noose. Say no to drugs, be open, truly open.

Arch is really not that difficult to use as a day to day user, might be diff for you depending on your need.

I didn't need to compile a program to suit my needs

I used it for about half a year or so.

I have moved to KDE-neon since Linux Mint drop KDE support. Plasma 5 is great, so far so good!
