I use:
Ubuntu LTS: job workstation and job server
Manjaro: job laptop and home laptop
Debian stable: home desktop and job server

I really like the stability of Debian, the ease of use of Ubuntu, and the recent packages of Manjaro. For my coworkers (who are neither programmers nor sysadmins) who want Linux I install Xubuntu LTS.

I have dabbled with OpenBSD and NetBSD. From what I know of Plan 9 (which is just a little bit), it seems to be the ultimate in sucklessness.
