Does anyone still use Ubuntu?
I use Windows.
When I need/ want to use Linux I use Fedora.
'Master race' kek. This is an actual OpenSUSE developer.
Xubuntu just because Xfce dwm
what the fuck does it matter what they look like? they could have sloth from the fucking Goonies as a dev for all I care, as long as they put out a good product, which they do, that all I care about
Ubuntu is great for making your start in the linux world, it sorta holds your hand and has a easier learning curve. Once you become proficient with ubuntu you can move to more technical distros such as debian, arch, gentoo etc.

feels good man.
Yup. I prefer it to other distros due to the PPA's (such as zfsonlinux, Numix theme), and because I'm used to Debian package management. Also the LTS release cycle suites me.
I don't use Unity though. I install from the mini CD and use Gnome Flashback w/ Compiz. I use a few gsettings tweaks to make everything the way I like it before installing Numix. Also compiz-settings-manager is sweet (set shortcuts for workspaces, enable alt-tab, etc).
on our family computer which multiple people use, i installed ubuntu because people kept clicking on ads and popups. Ever since then i never heard anyone complain about the machine running slow or anything lol. Anyways they never complained about the switch either since all they do is browse the web on firefox.
Almost. I use Debian Testing with the E19 DE.
I prefer rolling release over Ubuntu or Debian Stable's release cycle, and I've had the occasional broken/fucked up package back when I used Arch. So far Debian Testing is perfect for me.

I did this. After that I sort of got tired of the shitty font rendering and having to do shit that shouldn't have to do so out of laziness and OCD I switched back to Ubuntu. I love Red Hat based distro's though and I keep them on my servers.
I use Ubuntu just for the font rendering and because Unity is pleasant to work with if you get to know it. I'm getting tired of Canonical not updating their shit so I might go back to debian, because i hear debian's font rendering isn't that bad.
I do. And as this guy says >>45408395 I started muh freedomz life with it. I'll think about moving on to Debian sometime in the future. It all depends if it supports my laptop as good as Ubuntu did, I guess.
Gnome 3 is awesome.
Sorry, wrong screenshot... that's from ages ago.
gnome is definitely my new favorite DE. It used to be pretty shit and it still doesn't work that well on old hardware but ever since I got a new computer nothing beats it.
I used to use debian and arch and shit but I ended up coming back to ubuntu because I like to spend less time fucking around with stupid shit like fonts and drivers that should just work.

If you really wanted to understand how linux worked, you'd be either reading a book on operating systems or making your own linux flavour, not typing up make and make install and editing cflags.
The purpose of computation is automation. Your computer is just another x86-64 or ARM machine, it doesn't need coddling.
I do, but I'm not a big fan of Unity.
Only with GNU/Linux can I keep an OS on a USB hard drive and boot from it on any other computer and know it will just work.
I do, but mostly because I'm new to it and reading books about it, so I want everything to be exactly for easy learning.
Also hate unity what a piece of shit, I find Cinnamon to be way better.
