Whilst always a fan of Slackware and Arch, I think it is Salix OS that most impressed me this year. They seem to have got the balance usability and simplicity just right!

First post and I'm voting for slackware. Used arch for a while, then switched to freebsd. But, my friends hounded me abou slackware and decided try it out. Don't think I'm going to be distro hopping for a while

Slackware here too. 64 bit current on my "normal" machine, 32 bit 13.1 on the "backup" machine!
Slax on my gigaware (ok, it's kde3 but works well when not at home!).

Another vote for Slackware. It is truly a thing of simple power and beauty.

I agree. Ubuntu is Klingon for Windows.

I voted for Ubuntu. I was the first distro I EVER used and before that I was a less than average windows user. And I truely believe a Windows person (or Mac person) could move to Ubuntu now and not have too large a learning curve and not be missing too much. And Ubuntu (Canonical) has the money to back up their stuff, funded by corporate support and by services like the Ubuntu store and cloud sync which is now in beta for WINDOWS lol They are doing things the way Microsoft should have all along, and because of that they will be the driving force to be putting Linux as a whole in a much higher standing both in respect in having from the other OS's and in over all market share. Sorry those who posted Slackware, but fact don't lie, and I don't slackware will go ANYWHERE any time soon. So no worries

I have chosen Debian

I don't know all the distributions, but I know some of them.
Debian is very light to my old machine.
I use Lenny. It is very stable.
Furthermore, Debian is easy to use in a Desktop, mainly because of apt-get and the support of the international Forum.
KDE is the best desktop environment for Debian, yet I use many GTK, Gnome and X applications.
