I never enjoyed (and probably still do not enjoy) low-level messing on computers, so I stuck with whatever was most convenient (dos later windows for private use, VMS/ULTRIX, AIX, MVS, OS400 etc. for employers).
a couple of years ago I thought I'd consider switching from Win to Linux because the kids were starting to use computers more and more and implied doing lots of updating for me to keep them safe.
I first tried Kubuntu and stuck with that for a couple of years,
I found the twice-yearly updating a lot of hassle and looked for a rolling distro, first tried SolydXK then switched to Manjaro.
I am an odd-one out because I try to avoid using command-line as much as possible, to see how realistic it is for non-experts.
I have really enjoyed Manjaro. I have only occasionally had to do sysadmin-type of work.
I also really enjoy cloud-computing,
