I tried a few different distros recently and went back to slack. Slackware 13 64 bit has been my desktop choice.

Arch, because it is so fast and you can make it anything you want.

i like their live-usb creator.

unetbootin is more of a hack,
the fedora usb creator was designed to make bootable usb drives.

I'm varying again.
Mandriva has helped save one computer from being salvagable parts, but OTOH, it's also being a pest at the moment.
Gentoo has long been a fascination of mine, one I'm trying to get into again, but sometimes I'm a little on the impatient side, so it's not always the best one for me.

But overall, it's got to be Debian Squeeze. There's something about DEB systems that seems to just.... work.
