If you're using Ubuntu 11.04 (natty narwhal) for you GTK+ development, what will you use after official natty support ends Oct. 2012 ? and Why?

1) Ubuntu natty, until my other programs won't run.
2) Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx)
3 Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)
4 Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin)
5) Fedora
6) Debian
7) Mint
8) Mandriva
9) OpenSUSE
10) I'll turn to the dark side and use Windows.
11) Nothing, if I can't use Ubuntu natty I'll quit using gtk+

Like most Ubuntu users I'll probably consider sticking with it unless something is changed that annoys me enough to switch over to develop in Debian.
I've already updated to 11.10 and will likely update to 12.04 when it knocks over to Alpha2. I still use 10.04 on my netbook and don't really see any difference as to what distro I use for development; GTK is programmed the same in all and even my configure and make files are the same. However, I do find the debian based packaging system preferable over the redhat package manager, and the widespread use of Ubuntu helps in getting community support when running into distro specific oddities.

I switched back to Fedora when they dropped GNOME for Unity. I like Mint too. But for GTK+ development I agree that I don't care what distro it is. I usually test in Unity, GNOME 3, xfce, and KDE anyway.

Still on 10.04 as it is LTS and suits my work flow. I also run a couple of servers with it so its good to know the system well.

I have tried 11.04+ on a seperate partition and can't stand it. Prefer GNOME 3 but it still has some way to go (in terms of customisation) until I could get used to it.
