I only started using Ubuntu at 13.10 version, my repairman in Goulburn NSW put me onto it. I use 14.04 now, and might upgrade when 16.04 comes out next year. I am very happy with it.

It provides all the applications that I need with a few exceptions, most of those being related to science and amateur radio (I am an engineer and a radio amateur). Even so many scientific applications that I use are available in Linux.

I also have Linus Mint running on a separate HDD - it works just as well as Ubuntu. When I have had the need to repair my desktop PC I find that repairer is unfamiliar with Linux (the boss knows but his repairmen don't).
