What are some Linux distros you spent significant time on?

Not counting distros you only tried off curiosity.

Only the distro you used long enough that you see real problems.

And what are the problems?

Manjaro since last 3 years. Been on ubuntu/kubuntu/xubuntu... for more then 10 years, then realize how every update bring cool things for the cost of other things.. Anyway Manjaro(xfce) is my choice for daily work as a software developer, its pretty stable (even with my nvidia gt1030), pretty light (800mhz idle cpu) and totally satisfied my personal needs.

I agree, it's pretty light

Ubuntu obviously, tbh I don't like it but it's widely used so easy to troubleshoot on a whim, and large software base aswell.

Ran Kali and ParrotOS for a long time aswell, they are really nicely built but honestly too much for an average user.

Linux mint is really smooth, I may be switching over to this as my full time driver...

Manjaro... BTW it uses Arch.... Honestly a pretty good flavor aswell, I often think about switching over to it aswell.

Ubuntu. Several years ago, when I was searching for a distro that I can install successfully, Ubuntu was the first and I stick with it ever since. At work, I am dealing with CentOS.

Void Linux user here. The main problem, if you want to call it that way, is that it's a relatively small distro and thus is not as refined and designed as bigger distros.
