Definitely SolydK for me. Best distribution that I've come across in a long time. Sorry Ubuntu users, but I can't stand that 6-month release cycle. Monthly updates without the need to reinstall is just what I needed to keep myself in the Linux desktop world. That and a second computer for Windows to run Office. SolydK Linux is still my main OS.

Well, i switched to Slackware again this year, hopefully perminently. It is serving my purposes almost perfectly now it's 99% setup. I can't see why i'd leave it.

However, i must give this vote to Debian this year for Wheezy. It's a top release. I'm not a fan of the kernel used, but i can understand the logical thinking behind it. Debian is also the #1 distro for pissing me off. It still gets the vote though, for retaining SystemV but at the same time also making System d available. I really appreciate the choice rather than having system d shoved now my throat.

Since it's missing in the poll, I've voted for Fedora. Fedora with Mate Desktop is quite nice, but I prefer the CentOS long time support. Fedora packages that are interesting for a desktop distribution are available with EPEL. So CentOS is IMHO suitable for the desktop.
