I'd like to try gentoo or arch next, but for now it's plebian
I bought a new laptop earlier this year after Windows 10 made my last one of 7 years practically unusable. I dual boot with Mint 18.1 and it feels a lot like Windows 7. I use it for school and internet as well as storage space for pics I've found around the web.
I think the main reason I like Linux, coming from Windows, is the freedom of choice, such as how it only updates what I want when I want. I've had more than several occasions in class where I'm taking a test or a quiz and Windows 10 decides that it's the perfect time to install updates.
Messed up by trying Fedora only to find out I couldn't install or use any of the programs I usually run so I'm swithching back to Manjaro with MATE. I've heard good things about OpenSUSE but to be honest I'm just going to stick with what I like.
Manjaro (Arch based) with deepin, pretty slick from my personal experence. the task bar is a bitch though.
Got a blank gentoo I'm setting up and a cinnamon arch. Thinking about swithing from arch to deb.
Any opinions on i3? While it is very useful I prefer some comfy shit for entertainment and if I want to I can just use Terminator or something.
Use Gentoo (& XFCE4 where applicable) on everything for everything. It's far from flawless and definitely not suitable for a first timer but there's no other established distro that is as versatile and controllable that I know of.>>1006>Any opinions on i3?
It's good but consider sway if you have modern hardware. It's a i3 clone that uses Wayland instead of X11

In deb format there are tons of soft available, but appimage is getting more prevalent by the day.
Using KDE Neon here.
