The top 1 best distro for me is whatever distro I happen to be happy with at the moment.

YMMV

I hate articles like this. I'm willing to bet the writer's only tried about three distros, five at the absolute max.

My list (one of which isn't a "distro," because it's BSD):

Slackware
OpenBSD
Arch
Antergos
LinuxBBQ
Mint
Tails

Best for what?
For myself on my machines with my needs and experience I'd rate Debian (Testing or Sid), Slackware and Fedora. I could just then pick four of the other ones I've used in VMs or tried to dual boot but I don't see the point.
