I use Solus in several different way....
First off, I use Solus for work purpose with a text editor (atom io), ssh, LibreOffice and openVPN. With having multiple VPS's and bare metal servers this is where I spend most of my time. For a lot of the application testing I do use gnome boxes to virtualize test servers.
We all know Linux is great... it does infinite loops in 5 seconds.
