My vote went for Arch. I like it's speed and simplicity. It has a good forum and wiki as well. Easy to upgrade, etc
But I think some packages should be split up in 2, like is done in debian (pkg and pkg-dev) to save hd space. Otherwise I'd also like a localepurge tool for arch.
I started with Lindows to get my feet wet with Linux. It was great if you stick with CNR but then you had to wait for them to add new releases or suffer dependency hell. I switched to SuSE 9.1 and 10.0 today. It hasn't prevented me from doing anything and never gives a reason to look elsewhere. SuSE 10.0 rocks.
Hey, why didn't you put an "Other"-type option? It isn't just the bigger distros that should get all the attention, you know!
I put Slackware down, mostly because you didn't list my distribution anywhere (mine's based on Slack)... yes, obviously I'm more than a little biased, but I think that a 15-year-old who has over 8000 downloads in not even an entire year does deserve some respect
