It used to be the "just werks" distro until GNOME went to shit with GNOME 3 and Canonical decided to make Unity and other projects only to kill them years later. Now it's popular because it's Debian but easier (although not better) and because a lot of other distros depend on it.

every dev at the company i work at either uses a mac, or dual boots between windows and ubuntu (or an ubuntu flavor). every single one. everyone in the IT / tech support department either exclusively uses lignux (and it's almost always ubuntu or a flavor), or dual boots windows and ubuntu.

this is not some shit sjw-laden multiculti startup either. there's not a single negro in the mix. everyone is either white or east asian (with a handful of italians, and one jew).

ubuntu and its variants are far and away the most popular distros because of great hardware support OOTB (relatively), and great support from the community. it's that simple.

The company that owns basically used a massive swarm of bots to spam Linux forums claiming that it is the most user/noob friendly distro, so most people chose it without a second glance at the others.

Adrian Rogers

You don't need to touch systemd for it to be useful for you. In fact, systemd can make sure desktop users have to touch their init less. As a random example, systemd has a bunch of dynamic targets that only activate when specific hardware is present. This means the distro maintainers can make services like BlueZ depend on bluetooth.target, removing the need for end users to manually enable bluetooth functionality or disable it on systems that don't have a bluetooth adapter.

I used Arch for a few years when I was a student and unemployed. It was a good way to learn and get used to linux. Now that I'm a working man, though, it's the latest LTS release of Ubuntu for me. The "it just werks" thing goes not just for the functionality that normie tech enthusiasts expect but also for dev stuff. All the servers at work are always running the latest LTS Ubuntu server too, so dependencies match up fine with no fuss. And on the off chance something goes wrong, the proving grounds of Arch taught enough to fix an issue that comes up in Ubuntu easily.

As far as DE and distro flavor goes, it's Xubuntu for me since XFCE>GNOME>KDE>defunct Unity. Simple but powerful and customizable, and it uses very little resources.
