I started using SuSE in the mid-90's. As a techie, I had fun trying loads of distros* over the next few years. I settled on Arch for personal use in 2004 and the rooted Samsung ARM Chromebook I'm typing this on has always run Arch. My Intel laptop (server/torrents) runs Arch but when my S-i-L gave me an old Sony Vaio to wipe the hard drive and recycle, I loaded Mint and sent it back with a load of games for my four-year-old GS (that was two years ago and he still plays on it most days).Linux user since 1999.
No windows or Mac computers.
Debian GNU/Linux, Ubuntu variants and Linux Mint are my favorites.
Xfce and MATE are my favorite DE's.
