You could always edit it citing the reason as... 'Blatant flirting removed'

ubuntu seems ok; debian works great, damn small linux for some easy and portable stuff. Fedora looks good, have not used it for a while

lunar linux is fun.

but, i've liked sidux the best this year. fedora 10 is quite good, i'll always have at least one machine running slackware. i was not a huge fan of mint or suse. pclinuxos and ubuntu are cute.

tough to top debian.

looks like there are a few other distros i need to give a shot soon.
