I love slackware to death.... But I voted for Fedora. I just love Fedora.... Been a red hat/fedora fan boy, ever since the first distro I ever tried was a purchased version of RHEL when I was younger. If I could, I would vote for both.

Edit - I use XFCE on Fedora, and it by far gets the job done.

Thanks for mentioning Bodhi - just spent some time taking it for a test drive yesterday. +5 for being the stablest e17 experience I've ever had - good enough to be actually usable. However, I got to give Bodhi a -4 for being based on the lamest of lame Linux distros. Why didn't they simply use Debian? Then maybe the nvidia drivers for my graphics card would work. And I wouldn't have to worry about other bugs, er.. I mean strange and unexpected features. Still, if nvidia drivers would work I'd probably make the switch. Bodhi plans to become self distro in future though, so I will watch for this day.

Oh yeah, for those doing the math, Bodhi still gets a +1

Now there's something that would be useless.

I'm sure if someone is using a distro (or anything else) that's not on the polls, it would be added if they mention it.

I think Ubuntu have made some important and some would say impressive contributions to the community over 2011. I don't use Unity myself, but it does deserve credit.

Please share you list of important contributions. Unity gets too much flack.

Voted Crunchbang. Feb 2011 release was a great success and Dec 2011 version is proving to be even better, a welcome antidote to the year of gnome shell and unity. Being based on debian stable, CB is rock solid, with plenty of backports to keep things interesting.
