SolusOS received zero votes last year (and had none this year), so has been removed.

funtoo... id be lost if my distro had less than 500 programming videos embedded in its documentation....

http://www.funtoo.org/Programming

lfs is good keith, but its unmanageable and insecure with out package management. u should give funtoo a whirl, its source based, and funtoos site is hosted on funtoo. lfs is hosted on ubuntu.

Slackware. It's configurable, stable, and has the best packaging format and management system.
