On the desktop? On the server? On mobile?

It's going to vary for each and it's going to vary depending on current popularity.

I'm a new Linux user and I've been trying different Linux distros.
I like the Ubuntu Linux distros and MX-21 Linux distro,

I'm trying Linux Lite kind of close to Linux Mint 20.2 as both are Xfce GUI.
Linux Lite has an excellent help manual and MX-21 Linux has an excellent help manual.

I also tried EndeavourOS and I like it although EndeavourOS seems to have a bigger learning curve which requires more work so I'll go back to it later down the road.

I'm learning a lot and having fun.

Fedora Workstation

I have a Fedora VM with LXDE! It'd definitely suit being installed on bare metal.

I have one bare metal workstation install of RHEL and that's a treat after installing Xfce. (I am decidedly not a fan of Gnome.)

Although Fedora is a Gnome-by-default distribution (shipping Gnome 41, for what is worth), they publish what they call spins, which are ISO images tailored for other desktop environments and even raw window managers, like i3. Check here; there's a surprising number of spins: https://spins.fedoraproject.org

No point in my voting - I run 70 Linux, including all of those listed but many more.

I would repeat @Condobloke 's question at #8

Why are you wanting to know? You are using Kali and Mint so know how to multi-boot.

I can't really vote in that poll; as I don't think there is any day on any year when I only use a single distro.

The machine I'm using now is running Ubuntu (my desktop is LXQt and really it's Lubuntu jammy - but I think of it as Ubuntu; but has multiple DEs installed), but it wasn't the first machine I'll use in the day, and is ~never the last I use either. This is probably the machine I type/stare at most of the day though (but it's still never past 60%) !

I'll start and end the day on Debian boxes almost always.

There is one thing I can be sure of though; it's extremely rare that I'm not using GNU/Linux though - but I'm lucky :D

I too abstained.

I use different distros for different purposes. On some boxes, I may change my distro just 'cause I want to test something or try something. Then, I have virtual machines - lots and lots of 'em.
