Guess what?
Slackware, of course!
Still crazy after all these years.

Linux Mint

Linux Mint, I use it for Netflix and video with my 4k screen. First I used Linux Lite but the interface crashed several times while playing with the looks and feel. I love Puppy also very much.

Xubuntu

I've not voted for Ubuntu because the default / out-of-the-box experience with Gnome2 is nowhere near as good as some other distros. Xubuntu on the other hand, is an excellent out-of-the-box experience.

I have voted on antiX. Recently it helped me to bring back to the life a few old computers/laptops.

This is difficult question. I still feel sentiment to Slackware, and I use also openSuse and Lubuntu.

Manjaro is ARCH based, Rolling, with an added layer of verification before ARCH hits the Manjaro Stable repo. So far it has been rock solid for me.
My second choice would be Debian based Sparky Linux Rolling, I like it a LOT but it seems slightly less stable.

Debian Testing (like Sparky) always failed at some point for me.
Manjaro is intriguing, I used Arch for long time, now I don't have time/patience to install it from scratch and maintain, I guess I should try Manjaro which solve that problems.

I tried it with plasma and I had some visual glitches and problem at login, I should try it again with another DE, it's a good contender to Manjaro as packages number, reliability and support

PCLinuxOS. Been using it about five years now. Put it and Fedora on the same hardware and watch it run rings around Fedora. (Also, no more offline updates. My Fedora box wasted two hours of my time last night that way before it finally decided it was done, and that was the 2nd time in a week.) Available in buck-naked, average, and loaded configurations of various desktops.

Garuda is truly rocking it. I've had a few hiccups resuming from suspend while switching between multiple users on the desktop. But other than that, Dr360nized Gnome 40 has supplanted my love for KDE [almost]. I feel like a champion while using it; they really paid attention to the UX details.

Actual ArchLinux has been that for me, since 2014, across two machines.
(I had less pleasant experiences with Manjaro)

Unfortunately I stopped using GNU/Linux at the end of 2020 for software requirement purposes. I was using openSUSE. I loved using it. I wish I still could but there's really not much point when I keep rebooting to use the same old software over and over. Sick of Windows I've switched to MacOS now. It's a slight improvement but it's got different things that annoy me that openSUSE never used to do.
I didn't vote this year for the first time in about ten years because I don't think I've got much right to this time. I'm posting though because I want to view the results.
I hope you all have a ball with Linux. I did. Hopefully I'll find my way back eventually.
