I use Ubuntu on my desktop but I will think a couple of times before I vote for it. Hmm, thought a couple of times about it and decided to vote crunchbang.

Voted from my crunchbang netbook

I'm a big fan of Slackware, but I can't deny that Ubuntu has done great work in improving the desktop experience. Recently, I don't know what to make of some of Canonical's decisions, so I voted for Mint as both a high quality fork and a great reason for Canonical to stay honest or lose their position as one of the more popular distributions.

I originally voted Arch, but, I switched to Slackware 14. Slackware is unsurpassed in stability and I like being part of a distro that's been around longer than any other.

Gentoo makes my sytem administration a breeze. I use unstable and it's rock-solid. I love USE flags and I love the Portage god.

I also run Debian Testing as my guinea pig; anything that ends up on my Gentoo system is tested on Debian first. But Debian, as one of the world's most popular OSes, gets enough love as it is. All my love is thus reserved for Gentoo. (:

PCLinuxOS has been my distribution of choice for several year. However, it's sad to see that since Texstar stepped down due to health issues, it has been going downhill (though not to the point that I'm willing to switch to another distro just yet). Thus, it's Bodhi Linux this year, which I've been using as a secondary distribution for my laptop, and I'm quite pleased with it in many ways. It's a perfect light weight - heavily customisable hybrid.

Have to vote Debian this year. Arch busted their OS too many times this year for me, and then took their installer back 15 years technologically (I like to reinstall regularly to test different distros, but I do NOT use VM, I strictly use real hardware for my tests).
