Debian supports all hardware, which is just an inhuman effort. Debian will never let you down. Debian is my pick.

Kubuntu

I selected Ubuntu, but actually I use Kubuntu. I think it's a pretty good distribution and I haven't encountered any serious problems.

Thumbs up OpenSUSE

I think openSUSE is the desktop distribution that everyone needs for his computer

I *used* to like Ubuntu. But ever since Hardy introduced a kind of lag/slowness into the desktop I only use it because it is what I am familiar with. So I didn't vote. And the new direction Ubuntu is going is awful to say the least. At the moment my favorite is Mac OS....

hi

hav'nt seen anything about aptosid wich is a debian sid distro, very modern, efficient, stable, easy to install from live cd/usb (and very fast also) wich comes in several flavors :
k desktop, xfce, lxde, etc.

too bad aptosid is not more widely spread, for me it is the debian of tomorrow...

see www.aptosid.com and give a try you'll be amazed how easy it is ... and hardware recognition is at its highest...

Yep, Bodhi would be the correct answer.

I didn't have time to go through the whole thread, so, I wish "siduction" was included. Although it's first release appeared 12/31/11. I guess you didn't have time to be siduced.

Funtoo Linux. Second choice would be Arch, and third Bodhi. But definitely my first choice is Funtoo.

Just as some others, I'm not voting in this category this year - my desktop distro does not deserve my vote this time around but at the same time I haven't been annoyed enough to switch.

Come on Slackware! from 2nd to 4th place on my personal chart; Debian, CentOS, and Mageia.

Salix OS is my favorite so far, so my vote goes to Salix.
