Thanks to anticapitalista and mepis community antix and MX have became very stable, decent and popular. However, I still haven't seen any distro close to Slackware with respect to simplicity and flexibility. My vote goes for Slackware same as last year.

A lot of the OLDER machines that ran Win ME/95/98 only had about 1 GB and need a distro that will work at that point/ My vote goes to AntiX and MX, which will run on those machines. The newer distros forget about them.

Two categories is a good idea.

I like Anti's suggestion that there needs to be two categories.

Old boxes with lower resources should be a separate category.

I use Mepis, Debian, AntiX and MX Linux.

I voted for MX Linux because it is the best new distribution of 2015 in my opinion.

MX-15 is just beautiful.

Thanks for the feedback. There are no plans to break the Desktop Distro category into multiple polls based on resource usage.

Lots of good ditros here, I've actually tested or used a number of them if only briefly, but for polish and professionalism, I used openSUSE mainly, then, due to how much simpler and easier it was for adding multimedia and other programs I needed quickly, I put Ubuntu on my main PC now.
openSUSE is still my main 2nd but I came to realize, I always kind of had Ubuntu in the back of my mind for when I just needed something to work, so my vote went to it.
Always look forward to this time of year, Jeremy, thanks for this poll!

Solus has developed a new nice desktop, let's see where it goes from here! But users at reddit have asked the developer why he has created a new package manager, and he basically answered that it was just for the sake of it, and that the package manager is not his priority at all. It is a very bare-bones package manager with lots of work, but no innovation at all. It is really a deal breaker for me!

Finally... I'm very much happy that I didn't miss it this year. I've been waiting to vote for 3 years. This is my first time to vote.

The list doesn't seem to include Ubuntu derivatives - Kubuntu for example. Are they all included under Ubuntu?
Derivatives of SUSE and Gentoo are included, so why not *buntus?

Post LInux Lite

Please Add "Linux Lite"

Great Distro for Old/New H/W
Great for new/experienced users who want simplicity.

Vote: Linux Lite

Thanks

You need at least 1 post to vote, so if you tried to vote before your post you would not have been able to. You should be able to vote now without issue.
