IMO (but I was too late to suggest it - my fault) this category should be split into 2. Distros that user run on old boxes lets say with 1GB or less or new. Having said that, I use antiX on both.

Please add Solus.

I am really impressed with OpenSUSE Leap, but Solus needs my vote for this one. An independent distro, new shell for Gnome3, and new package manager. That's hella innovation.

It's probably too late for this year (maybe next year...), but would it be a good idea to break Debian down into oldstable, stable, testing, and unstable?

Solus was removed previously as a result of getting zero votes.

I'm pretty sure that was Solus OS. It was based on Debian, Solus is built from scratch.

After he suddenly bailed on Solus OS, I would shy away from his products...

a good selection of distros here

a good selection of distros here, but I cannot vote. Personally I'm using Manjaro, antiX and MX, but probably would vote for MX Linux, because it improved quite a lot with the latest version MX-15, although the previous version was actually groundbreaking.

Mint, but I will try Solus this year. Seems to be very promising.
