Approachable.

Because it's easy to use and comes with tons of stuff out-of-the-box, making it ideal for newbies and people not wanting to faff about setting things up.
I use Linux Mint 18.3 with Cinnamon in a VirtualBox VM for testing & sandboxing.

Solid.

But one word is not nearly enough. So here are two, calling out its proprietary counterparts: NO BS.

When a mathematician shows another mathematician a simple, correct, accurate solution to a very complex problem he'll exclaim:

"Beautiful!"

Whether you're an engineer, an advanced programmer, a scientist, or an artist - when something does what it's supposed to do so perfectly and without reams of fluff or flash - there is no other more appropriate word.

It's a reference from "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". 42 is the answer to everything.
