Till recently I've been using Ubuntu; now I've switched to Xubuntu because I find XFCE more customizable than Unity.

But whichever distro I use (and I've tried quite a few), I always immediately go and download a whole lot of other packages before I start using it anyway. Since Debian and Ubuntu are pretty similar that way, I guess the only deciding factor for me will be how it looks ๐Ÿ˜‰
