Wow, it's been almost 9 years since I first replied to this thread ... time flies. I'm still using Slackware. My main machines use 14.0. I've experimented with 14.1 and even made a live CD out of it. I put 14.2 on my laptop when changing it to a SSD.

I have voted Debian because that's what my family use but I have an Arch Linux system that I use for games, a task it performs admirably.

I use my OpenBSD ThinkPad X201 for anything serious though

My only Linux distro I use at home is Manjaro/Arch. Main usage: running my outliners and closed source textmaker office program. All the other things are done with my OpenBSD workstation/laptops.

At work our main servers (pysical and virtual) are running Debian / FreeBSD / OpenBSD.

Debian --> systemd --> pain in the ass.

Aside this,
I'm a lucky guy...

I still use Debian 7, but not much, and when support for that runs out, maybe even sooner,
Linux will no longer be a part of my system.

I am happy with OpenBsd, have not tried any of the other BSD's since Open Bsd works fine for me.
Nothing against Linux, but I am much more comfortable with OpenBsd.

I probably will still have the current Debian stable on a VM, and the testing version on another.

My wife, and my kids computers have the MX -16 on them.
I didn't see the poll at first, but still am not voting for any, in the not to distant future , all
the computers in our family will be OpenBsd, or another BSD
My best friends are parrots
