I'm always playing with other distros in VMs but I've yet to see anything that makes me want to switch. Not that the other distros don't look good, because they do, I just tend to stick with what's familiar.
I absolutely agree. I primary use Debian Wheezy, but have tried Mint, Fedora, Slack, kFreeBSD, and on and on, but it's familiarity that keeps me with Debian. Although I did make the transition from Gnome 2 to Shell and am (*gasp*) loving it. It's the deep down stuff (package management, file location, etc) that makes each distro what it is to each user as far as I can see.
