I've been a GNU/Linux user since about 2005 when I got tired of Windows and the lack of customizability and OS control. I started with Knoppix, then went to Debian and Ubuntu until 2007. I looked around for minimalist distros that I could customize myself. I wasn't ready for Gentoo and wanted dependency checking, which disqualified Slackware, so I ended up with Arch. I fell in love with the level of control I had and the ease of PKGBUILDs for any software that wasn't officially supported. Today, I don't see myself using any other distro in a serious manner (at least not without pacman).

A user of Arch GNU/Linux from June 2007 to September 2012. The move from sysvinit to systemd (and the udev/dbus merge to systemd) drove him away from Arch as it encroached on his desire to switch to runit (which succeeded) and eradicate systemd from his computer (which did not succeed). Since he valued user choice and the UNIX philosophy more than convenience, he left.

It is unknown which distribution he switched to.
