Manjaro KDE - switched from Windows when I had a build a new PC earlier in the year.  Figured it was worth a try and no regrets at all.

Manjaro appealed for the rolling updates, and the solid software repos.  Has been spot on so far.

CentOS 5/6 on some systems, Fedora 20 on the rest.
Haven't tried out CentOS 7 yet but as soon as I have some spare hardware to test it out I will.

I've been using Linux Mint with KDE on both my desktop and laptop recently. It's improved substantially since I last used it a couple of years ago! Overall, it's quite the pleasant experience. I just wish I could get my Radeon R9 290 and Intel HD Graphics 4600 to both display something on their respective monitors simultaneously.

If I find the time to manually tweak and configure everything, I may install Arch or Gentoo. Mint definitely gets the job done for now, though. It's sleek, beautiful, and quite easy to use!

Fedora 20 on a System76 laptop. It came with Ubuntu preinstalled but I've used Fedora happily for years and never tried Ubuntu. I left it on the laptop while I tested the hardware and when I was happy I went straight to a new Fedora install.

RHEL / Fedora / Centos

Plus a bit of Ubuntu / Debian to keep my hand in laughing

Fedora 20 with MATE Desktop on my work Thinkpad. I thought GNOME 3 would get better in later versions, but I still find it annoying and intrusive for a work machine.

F21 Alpha is tomorrow, so an upgrade is imminent. :)
