Red Hat was my introduction to Linux, but Ubuntu is the cleanest and fastest distro I have used. It runs my desktop P2P server, and is the choice to dual boot into on my laptop.

I actually use CentOS on my desktop, but that doesn't seem to be an option.

Kubuntu! But I must be the only person that uses it; it does not appear in the choices to vote on.

Ubuntu comes with GNOME version 3... which many people have agreed is crap. Kubuntu, with KDE, is way better.

Strange that Linux Mint was not grouped with Ubuntu.

Need I say, based on... plus, put KDE on any Linux.

P.s: edit\add; love when any Linuces user mentions software I've not heard of, it's always available in (I know this can be true in others but seems not as much as) Debian!

Man, this was a hard one this year. Been running Slackware for a long time now, but my laptop has been changed to Fedora. Put it on there to give it a try, never took it off....

Lot's I've never heard of in that list, much less tried. I'm voting Archlinux, as it seems to suck the least and I've been pretty happy with it. The arrogance of the Arch community? Now that's another matter entire. Arch doesn't need to be an "advanced users" only distro but some seem to need to get their self esteem via dissing lesser knowledgable folk

Be that as it may, if you're new to Linux and have the time to spend with it, Arch will learn you a thing or three

I tried Arch in its pre-systemd days, it was OK, but I'm not keen on rolling releases.
