    How many Linux/Ubuntu OSs do you use?

    I'm curious. People who are into watches (like me) collect watches (I've got what most collectors would call a small collection of 13), rich people who are into cars inevitably have a collection of cars - usually both vintage and new. So, as Linux/Ubuntu fans (fanatics?) I'm wondering how many different versions of operating systems you usually run at any one time.

    I'm a newbie so I've spent some time experimenting / playing around etc. recently (and still am I guess) but I'm currently running:

    - Ubuntu Unity 16.04 on a Toshiba Laptop - dedicated to music playback via Quodlibet and hooked up to my Hi-Fi separates system
    - Ubuntu Mate 16.04 - on my Lenovo desktop, my main workhorse and vehicle for Netflix etc.
    - Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 - on my work Lenovo laptop for when I work overseas

    That's 3 different OSs. I'm presuming some of you are using more? And I'm thinking more about for general use/work/hobby purposes than serious programming in which case you'd use more out of necessity.

    Re: How many Linux/Ubuntu OSs do you use?

    It's good to see another Mate user who uses it on their main computer. I started using Ubuntu around Dapper/7.04, and my fondest memories of using Linux were on Ubuntu last decade when GNOME was still GNOME back during v2 (before they made people have to make MATE), but I have a big collection of old Linux CDs/DVDs.

    Currently, I'm running:
    Linux Mint 18.3 Mate on my main/gaming computer monster
    Linux Mint 18.3 Mate on several VMs on Virtualbox for programming/testing
    Linux Mint 18.2? Mate on my (main) laptop
    Debian Stretch Mate on my Acer netbook
    My router desktop has several partitions:
    1 Debian Stretch Mate system
    1 Debian Stretch system w/no GUI
    I recently installed on it Ubuntu 16.04 w/no GUI, and
    Ubuntu 16.04 Mate
    I recently used Ubuntu 9.04 live CD to do some maintenance on a hd

    I also like Crunchbang, Cb++, and Finnix, but I haven't used these for a long time. The system I first learned Linux on was Red Hat back in college.

    I've got Ubuntu 16.04 with a custom (compiz-based) desktop on my main machine, Ubuntu 18.04 with Openbox on my old netbook (Asus EeePC900) and Ubuntu 16.04 server on a single-board computer (PCEngines APU1D4) which serves as my LAN router and wifi access point.

    Re: How many Linux/Ubuntu OSs do you use?

    i've decided to use pop!_os for my main linux & just run other distro's in vm.
    i'm using the testing version of pop!_os which has been rock solid, but i just like it a lot more than anything else out there. it's still ubuntu, just different clothes.

    Quite some variety I see - for a variety of purposes too. Thanks for the responses so far.
