Ubuntu. Works brilliantly, had just about everything I needed pre-installed. Everything else is easy to get. It's got a interface that's not too complex and it's working brilliantly.

Would have liked to pick either Kubuntu or Xubuntu, but alas neither one was listed.

Ahh, what the hell...Slackware would win anyway. Debian testing/unstable (base install) and Arch here.

For desktop edition, I had to give my vote to mint. The reason being is that it made a Linux convert out of my almost 70 year old mother.

Goodness, it's like you're suddenly surprised that the slack-head zombie legions are going to pull the lever for our holy distro. Dude, we live for this, it's like digital tithing for us. Add to that, the Slackware user base is widely capable of IP masq'ing our way to some serious ballot-box stuffing. It's not going to be a contest.
The rest of you people need to sit quietly in Ubuntustan and watch your dogs bark...

Before somebody with no sense of humor decides to dispute any portion of the above post, it's an attempt at levity and not to be taken seriously.

I voted Ubuntu once again this year, it is the best Linux Desktop Distro for majority of computers users. It is and probably always will be my favorite Distro (although I quite like Debian as well).

Also 2010 was a major year for Ubuntu with 10.04 LTS being released with a new default look and loads of other features, and then 10.10 and then the announcement that the next version will get the Unity interface.

LTS becase it's going to take them a long while to get all the bugs out.... I tooks 10.04 for a test drive and don't understand the attraction for seasoned users. Ubuntu is like Inspector Gadget - well meaning but plagued with glitches.

Of the distros listed in this poll I have given 14 of them a serious test run at different times. Diversity of choice is a wonderful thing.

Have been with Arch for a couple of years and very happy with it.

Ubuntu still makes me shudder.

Best Distro

In the minority here, but I like SLED and then OpenSUSE.
