TDE user, Debian stable. I am going to use whatever Debian 
provides...that said I plan on using Wheezy as long as it is supported, 
hopefully LTS. I also have Debian Squeeze LTS boxes that work fine for 
the tasks they do.

I use Vbox with Jessie, systemd, I do not directly interact with the 
init system, works fine. I already make make judicious use of 
virtualization for the new stuff.

 I prefer a simple as possible gnu/linux environment because I do want 
to be in control of my own hardware. TDE is enough automagic for me.

GNU is not Unix though :-)
