Linux Mint Debian Edition was never previously suggested. It has been added.

Before opening this poll there was a thread to suggest nominees by LQ users. This is not Jeremy's fault if someone didn't bother himself to suggest LMDE.

as a complete newbie i was happy to stumble upon Linux Lite and settled there,
so they get my vote

i am going to amaze and astound with my prophetic vision,
and say slackware will come out on top

edit to add:
that looks bad, me right after the developer of linux lite,
but it was a complete coincidence

I'm always dabbling with various distributions, but Arch has been working very well as my default distro for nearly 15 years now, so it gets my vote again this year.

Voted Manjaro since I'm currently using Netrunner Rolling which is based on Manjaro.

"Normally" I'd have voted opensuse which would be true for 13.2 -- currently I struggle with Leap 42.1 and tumbleweed, though. Both much slower in boot and shutdown, with loads of software massively buggy (Kmail2, Thunderbird ...) so that I'll abstain this year.

elementary OS is awesome! It's got it's issues but overall I think it will be the desktop of the future!

I picked Debian, since it is what I've been using for all my systems, and rock solid. However, I think the most interesting one is NixOS, which I don't think is on the list.
