Linux, while fun to play around with, has too many incompatibility issues with popular programs and web sites regardless of build.

One major concern is the inability to play DVDs. Getting some builds to even play Utube can be an exercise in frustration.
Oh no....you can easily get all that stuff humming along

Well now is this not interesting, there are more people running a Linux variant.

At work, we run a Raspberry Pi 2 w/ Raspbian(?) as the OS. It takes a lot of abuse for what we put it through.

Been running Linux Mint for a while. I have a Windows 10 SSD boot, Linux SSD boot, and a shared 2TD HDD between the two. I only use Windows 10 for a couple applications. I don't even know when the last time I booted it up was.

Been a Red Hat/CentOS/Fedora user for nearly 20 years. I quit using Windows for anything when XP was still new.

Slackware and Bunsenlabs Linux on pretty much everything except the gaming rig and my wife's PC. I plan on tinkering with Void Linux on the Raspberry Pi 3, if it's faster than Arch and Raspbian it will become the basis for an APRS setup in the Bronco.
