Hello, how did you pick your current distribution? What were your criteria?
I'm using Ubuntu LTS, I've been using it for quite a while now. I find it comfortable because it's a "just works" distro. Sometimes my family members use my computer so that also makes it useful because the Gnome interface is very simple. I don't need snap, but it doesn't bother me, it might come in handy. I haven't noticed systemd cause me any issues (I use distributions with other init systems as well). I use my computer first and foremost for programming, and then for software design. I'm thinking of switching back to Debian, I used it for a while until about the end of 2019. I find Debian to be very similar to Ubuntu, but without all the funky stuff, much simpler, and also easier to avoid proprietary software.
What are your use cases? Do you perhaps even use a BSD, which one and why?

Thank you for your answers.
(This is a question for everyone, not just OP.)
