Such a simple question to answer!

My main system has been Linux since 1999 - mainly Debian based because it was the easiest system to install & upgrade.

I also use OpenBSD because I like to have as little extra stuff/programs on my system than is necessary to do what I want.

Cool Primary Desktop System

Hi, I consider Linux to be my primary desktop system of choice.
I am currently running Fedora 22 on my main system, but have started trying out Fedora 24 beta on an old laptop that looks promising.

I do use a windows system for some tasks, mainly apps that will not work or do not have an equivalent app in Linux!

I have been running Linux like this for about 3 years now after some earlier attempts many years ago that were not successful...

I hope this helps anyone considering running Linux for the first time....

Q4OS is a decent and very much underated distro.

I see, thanks for claryfying that. I hate the restrictions that come with m$. Also adobe tend to suck often.

Have to say Windows. Use Linux VMs only for embedded Linux development.

I've been running Slackware Linux since 2.2.0.1, and recently built a machine running Linux Mint. Which relegates my Windows 7 box to third place in usage.
