I've tried quite a few but Debian has been the only one I've been happy to stay with. Started on Redhat, went too Suse but had problems with it ( probably my fault though ), and had Gentoo for a while. Redhat lasted the longest of the others, but once you've had apt from a distro that was designed for it theirs really no going back.

I think that Mandrake is great as a home desktop distro. It's easy, relatively powerful and has all the bells and whistles customary to home desktop operation systems.

I would have to say Debian Sid, because it is setup just the way i want from a distro. Slackware 9.x is a big second.

I'm for Mandrake, but I didn't know there were so many slackers around here.

I've tried Slackware (not sure which version), Knoppix 3.2, Redhat 9, and Mandrake 9.1, and my vote goes to Mandrake no questions, just due to it picking up virtually everything hardware wise, and having a lot of the programs I coulden't get to run on RH installed right away. A very nice and easy to work with distro. My vote goes to Mandrake.
