I mainly use Ubuntu for my job and university. Even though I'd like to use fancier distros, I really have to ship software so I can't be bothered by all the overhead from a more hardcore rolling release like Arch Linux for example.

Using Ubuntu never prevented me from using productivity boosting tools. I recently started using i3wm, which is a tiling windows manager that's highly customisable and use few resources to work. I followed some videos to customize it to my liking and I really appreciate how all my windows are in the same place all the time and I can finally ditch Alr+tab. You can find my i3wm config here.

This is the main reason why I defaulted to Ubuntu as it lets you get going pretty quickly.
