It's also more full-featured than any other lightweight deskrop I've tried; it's just right for me. So there.
Since you're no newbie, mayhaps you should take a look at Archlinux. Lean and mean, minimal rolling distro. Build to suite on top of that. I think pacman is my favorite linux package manager of all. Simple and jfw!

That said, I get that Linux distros pretty much must adopt whatever latest madness RH shoves down our throats. Don't get me wrong, for as much as I appreciate the benefits of Systemd as an init replacement, I fear the subsequent on contiually expanding systemd take over of the system will eventually result in a monolithic system and result in "The Big One" security wise. NSA, or whomever, will have pwn'd all our bases!

Still Debian. It is closest to Linux as it should be. Extremely stable. Excellent user community. Transparant. User friendly because of its stability and transparency.

Linux Mint Debian Edition is a good second one, but it lacks user friendlyness. It is install and play all right, good for inexperienced users. But Mint tries to hide complicated things from users. Hiding is plusuntransparant, is doubleplusungood.

It's Debian. Particularly Debian Sid (Unstable).

I have used Debian Stable and currently using Sid (Unstable). But I never faced such problems.
I don't like Ubuntu because occasionally one or the other application (like app manager or unity interface) of Ubuntu/Kubuntu hangs.
But Debian is very stable (even unstable version is so stable.)

Once I went Arch, I never went back. Well I do run Manjaro Unstable (Arch derived) on one box, as it allows me to run the latest Plasma5 application development packages (kf5-apps) without having to recompile them everyday. Also worth a mention is KaOS, which I didn't see on the list.

I voted for linux mint because you can install software without problems. Directories are where they are supposed to be.
Note for next years vote!! How about a category for ARM linux distributions or SOC linux distributions

Last year i voted for Debian for it's release of Wheezy. This year I've recently decided to switch over to OpenSuse again. It's serving me well currently, but i used Slackware exclusively last year, except when testing other distros. It gets my vote, since it never let me down. One happy customer. I tried Pisi linux with optimistic hopes, but after a distro upgrade things went sluggish and choppy, and that really bugged me. I have distro upgraded my Slackware partition twice now and both times it was super smooth.

I beg your pardon, as your post is meant for oldrocker99. But I want to share my opinion about Arch Linux and I do not want to offend anyone or particularly Arch Users.

The thing is that I loved Arch Linux most compared to any other distros out there, since it has a very good documentation, good build system, good everything except that the user is forced to be at bleeding edge all the time. I had to upgrade the whole system and partial upgrade didn't work (it used to break the system completely). And I am not that kind of person who always try to update all of things available (and paying for costly internet data). So I ditched it and returned to Debian where I have liberty of upgrading part of system without breaking a thing.
I am using Debian Sid, upgraded many small things as I found required, still it is damn stable.
