Debian of course. Without Debian the Linux ecosystem would be a very boring place indeed.

Fuduntu is the best Desktop distribution of course!

CrunchBang -- Debian under the hood, Openbox on the surface (if you don't want to vote for CrunchBang, then vote Debian). :-)

Manjaro http://blog.manjaro.org Arch-based Arch compatible :D

A different kind of beast!

Xubuntu. Ubunto without the bloatware.

I think this is a more accurate representation of reality ;)

You may be right, but my machine runs perceptibly faster in Xubuntu ... or did when I switched, back when Unity first appeared. (No, I don't have the data.)

Fuduntu is my choice! Once I tried it I never looked back!

Fuduntu, of course. :)

It should but my point is Gnome and KDE aren't all the bloat in Ubuntu, if you want XFCE to run fast try Debian and be amazed how much better it is without Canonical's, under the covers, bloatware.

fedora has a redhat backbone but still offering a powerfull desktop. The bleeding age and thinking man's linux. fedora for ever. (:)

crunchbang

An obvious choice - Slackware

Kubuntu, Easy to learn for newbies and powerful enough for fulltime use
