I voted Linux Mint because I have used Linux Mint in the past, but actually I think the best this year is the new Ubuntu MATE distro which is sadly missing from the list. (Voting for Ubuntu would imply the crappy stock version with associated "desktop environment".)

Slackware for life. Once you Slack, you always come back.

I'll take a wild guess and say Slackware wins by a landslide...

My acer 8730Z is 9 years old and runs really, really well and that came with Vista (which didn't survive it's first boot) runs rings around some machines made as recently as 2014 with Win installed, it's just a lot more "snappy". Having an ssd helped though oh yeah that machine runs pclinuxos too

Slackware, even though there hasn't been a new release since November 2013. I like Slackware for it's rock solid stability, and small but important updates, along with it being the oldest surviving distro.

Debian is my personal choice, but support for others often requires different choices based on experience and often the hardware.

I wish we had rank choice voting, where we rank our favorite(s). That way, if no browser gets a majority, we go to the second choices of those who voted for browsers that didn't make the top 5 (random, can select more or less), and keep whittling away till we have a true favorite, as well a true 2nd, 3rd and 4th favorites.

I've the utmost respect for this forum but i have to insist on not mincing words on account of that respect by calling the decision to club all Linux Mints including LMDE together while at the same time splitting hairs for an entirely superficial distinction between Firefox and Iceweasel, positively idiotic!

While I don't think it would be that much of a good idea to split all Mints, because most distributions have different ISOs for each DE, I do agree that Firefox vs Iceweasel and Thunderbird vs Icedove don't make much sense, since they are exactly the same software with different name and icons. There are those who say they may be different, but in reality they are not.

One is based on Ubuntu releases and draws from it's repositories the other on Debian stable, if that is not a major distinction, what is?

Slackware is the one I choose to use, so I'd better vote for it.

That's true. LMDE is totally different distro than Mint and personally I think your suggestion has merit.
