SolydXK first, Kubuntu second, but neither are on the list - and SolusOS and Fuduntu are both on the list, but are no longer active (both were great while they lasted though).

SolydXK, definitely. Secondly, Linux Mint Debian Edition (with MATE desktop). Neither appear to be among the poll options, which is weird considering the defunct SolusOS *is* listed.

Has to be Debian -- I've fallen out with it a few times but I think we've worked out our differences (for now at least).
I'd give an honourable mention to Slackware though as it's the most logical distro I've come across. If Debian stopped working for me I'd be using it now. I keep it hanging around but never seem to get around to doing a full install with all the packages I like to have around, so it's relegated to another GRUB entry at present.

Solydxk.

Not perfect, but I think they have a solid foundation for a good distro (which essentially is a slightly more tested version of Debian-testing). I still don't like their mint-derived tools (preferring Debian's alternatives).

Other distros that I have interest in:

Ubuntu - Still like the out of the box experience, still my choice to recommend to basic/new computer users.
Crunchbang - Good out of the box experience suited to the more experienced Linux user.

One to watch for next year - http://tanglu.org/ - its like Ubuntu but maintaining upstream compatibility with Debian
