Slackware...

Duh!

But I've been recommending LMDE to folks, mostly n00bs, and they seem to like it much more than ewboontew - not only that, but since it's a rolling distro there's no need for a re-install until you buy another box

Perhaps LMDE deserves to be listed on its own instead of being lumped in with the other Mints?

I voted for Arch, as Ubuntu has started down a dark path to commercialization. Right now, I'm running ArchBang (basically Arch with an OpenBox wrapper) from a roomy 16GB flash drive, and its working great. I'm still not used to systemd though

Or better yet use LFS/BLFS lightning fast and nothing installed that you didn't install yourself!

antiX - though once again it is not listed. Great for old and new hardware for those that like it mean and lean.

Is it not considered part of Linux Mint, or should it have it's own separate vote?
