I have voted openSUSE, since there was just one choice.
There are some more really good distros on that list though.

Question _________________________________________

I thought of counting and thinking how many would not be there if for Debian but too many rock!
I missed if this was a multiple pick poll?(Damn my impatience:)voted Debian but should have put Salix as well!

Edit: now I see above "no," tho it would be cool!?

Linux Lite. It finally took my desktop away from Linux Mint. (Yes, I love Debian too.)

Oops... did I just vote 3 times?

Ubuntu, due to it's large package repository, its ease of use, and the five year lifespan of the LTS releases. I prefer using JULinux 12, an Ubuntu MATE variant with a one prong MATE menu on the lower left corner, its own wallpaper, and a unique greeter screen on LightDM.

This year I voted for Manjaro. I spent a good part of last year using Netrunner Rolling before making the jump over to Manjaro.

After being a Kubuntu user for many years I just had to switch to a distro that can keep up with the latest KDE changes and bug-fixes. In fact I quite like the rolling distribution model which is the main reason I didn't choose Neon.

I voted openSUSE. What I really meant is tumbleweed -- not Leap 42.1 which gave me lots of small niggles (Leap42.2 seems to be improved, though). Tumbleweed is quite surprising for me, my first rolling release with no complaints in more than one year of use. Kudos.

<edit> Hehe. That's one on me. After yesterday's update there is a firmware error, some IDs of the CPU-cores get tangled, but the system is working anyhow. </edit>

Linux Mint is my current favorite, nicely laid out and easy to install.
