No Chakra?? C'mon guys! Chakra flies on my hardware and looks so purty, while OpenSUSE just limps along. I suppose I'd better give my vote to Arch then. Going off to investigate CrunchBang now as curiosity has been piqued.

Nice how each of the listed applicants gets his own single reply and then some not even listed.
I was lazy, there's a full year to go still. So I just voted for the best of this year - Mageia.

Thumbs up

Manjaro! Though I am new to an Arch-based distro, Manjaro makes it easy and FUN!

1st Post to vote for Ubuntu

Wow. I didn't know I had to post at least once to vote.

I'm voting again for Ubuntu. I use Kubuntu on my desktop but was not pleased with it on my netbook for any release after 10.10. I currently use Ubuntu 12.04 on it. I also use CentOS, Crunchbang, and Backtrack.
