Devuan, because it provides the commonly used apt with debs, but without systemd. I don't like the security problem of systemd. Unlike MX Linux, Devuan doesn't use the Debian repos, but instead copies them and removes systemd and systemd dependencies from apps.

ROSA

I've used ROSA all this past year after using Puppy, antiX, and MX for years, and it's served me quite well. Very easy to use, very intuitive. I didn't vote here since I don't see it listed.

I use Rosa on one of my desktops, and I do have to say that ROSA gets my vote for most improved of 2018 (although not my favorite desktop still). I wasn't overly impressed with it in prior years, or even at the beginning of 2018. But towards the end of the year, they REALLY improved it, and it's now EASILY my favorite RPM based distribution, blowing past Fedora.

Thanks, but I really don't care much for KDE/Plasma. It's a great DE but I prefer something else, Mate or Openbox.

Thank you. I was also a bit over reacting
