I used to do Ubuntu but now run Mint 12 x64.
I dualboot Ubuntu Lucid Lynx with MacOS on my main laptop (Macbook Pro). I used Ubuntu for several years as the only OS on my previous main desktop, recently replaced with an iMac (on the iMac I have virtualized Ubuntu).
I also have many different distros on bootable CD/DVDs and some of them are also on dedicated USB boot sticks. They are really useful!
I'm a Linux Mint guy and run LM11 (never upgraded to LM 12 as it is a bit of a hack job). As I see it, no other distro does as good a job of listening to the community or integrating polish and original features. As a matter of fact, right now I'm tes driving the RC for LM13 debian running the Cinamon Desktop on a netbook. NICE!
I'm using Fedora 16 right now; I've tried Ubuntu which I grew apart from. OpenSuSE I've used and enjoyed it, I played with ArchLinux as well. I got most of ArchLinux working, but I couldn't figure out how to get the wired network to stay on, and had to go to terminal > and run DHCPCD eth0 every time I turned it on ._.; I've played with Mint as well; Fedora so far is alright. I just dunno what else to try xD Though browsing this thread will help me find new distros I'm sure.
It seems I have always used Ubuntu and right now using 12.04 Final Beta . I have 3 disks and numerous partitions and there is a Windows 7 partition but it is hardly used (only when I need to do something really out of the ordinary and when messing with HTC Evo 4g). On occasion I do play a video game which is why I would boot up Windows but for all types of work I use my Ubuntu and I love it.
Ubuntu. Just upgraded my comp and while I was at it the OS, went from 10.04 to 12.04. I'm really liking it and not hating unity like I was afraid I would. HUD is great.
I'll have to give 12.04 a try. I just watched a preview video and it showed the user using (what I am assuming is) HUD to blur the image. It's looking pretty cool.
I am still wondering how to pull up the HUD - on many sites they said you have to press control and you can pull it straight up but it does not pop on mine. Are you accessing it from the Ubuntu app/icon on the launcher?
Kubuntu (although I did use Mandrake and Red Hat way, way back). Haven't upgraded in forever, though.
I use Mint + Cinnamon . Waiting for LM 13 Maya which will have Cinnamon as default desktop .
