Gentoo. It has taught me more about Linux than any other distro. Have tried a lot of distros but they always leave me disappointed...

Thumbs up Best Desktop Distribution

For me, Linux Mint 17 walks alone with ease of installation, use, configuration, reliability, security, and versatility. Everything I have used "just works," right out of the box.

It's not on the list. My desktop distro is Linux Lite since 08/14. This box is Ram challenged and very old, Lite is a perfect fit for me, using v2.0, easy to install and use, support and community are great!

Talking Ubuntu MATE

I still like the Ubuntu infrastructre (so sue me), and hate Unity, and love the GNOME 2 interface that I started with so long ago. I used Mint for MATE, the interface I like the best, but I found Mint to be...annoying. I installed Ubuntu MATE 14.04, and as happy as a clam with it; it's nearly as lightweight as LXDE or XCFE, and nowhere near as lightweight as Enlightenment. It's also more full-featured than any other lightweight deskrop I've tried; it's just right for me. So there.

I really like elementary OS Luna for its look feel usability it's awesome!!! And I can't wait for Freya to come out.
I know i can't have two favorites and since it isn't on the list I will add it as a side note. I also reall like Peach OSI it's super cool and nice to use.
