For me Ubuntu is best because its really simple for noobs but again, I really like Fedora and I don't know about others and Linus Trovalds but I loved Gnome3. So I think I should vote for Fedora.

You need to have one post before you can vote in the MCA's. You should be able to vote without a problem now.

Tricky question for me. I run worst-case scenario: linux on a fully Windows-optomized Toshiba laptop. PCLinuxOS ran very well for me, and if they ever get a 64-bit version available, it will get my vote. Until then, even though it makes my hair hurt to say it, Mint 14(ONLY) does get my vote. If they ever cut the cord and dump Ubuntu's repositories, they can be great.

I agree that Crunchbang is great...elegant, fast, and stable; but, I can't make it work with my hardware.

I would vote Slax... the new Slax 7 is amazing. KDE 4.9 in 214Mb download. Fully Slackware 14 compatible with the new "slax activate <package>" package manager. Can you add Slax in the poll?

I've voted for Fuduntu this year. They seem to have the knack of creating a rolling-release distro that's not unstable, they've got all the configuration tools that make life easy (inherited from Fedora), and they avoid the bugs that make life difficult (which are usually inherited from Ubuntu).

openSUSE (Jeremy, please note the correct spelling.)

Please don't let Ubuntu win this year.

Bodhi Linux is the best- give it a try

Bodhi Linux is the Enlightenment desktop on Ubuntu. Final Enlightenment desktop due by end of 2012. Kubuntu is right up there on top too.
