I was pretty happy with OpenSUSE 10.1, but I think I may try Ubuntu later for a while.

Gentoo, for sure. I just can't get away from the "geek feeling" of it, and the fact your programs run 5x faster than everyone else's.

K/Ubuntu, since it Just Works (R), for the most part, even though it does have problematic areas (e.g. the default path configuration, and the Python installation that ships seems to be configured in a non-standard way that breaks certain stuff). It's also the only distro I've tested that the IrDA port on my laptop will function with, and it's probably got the best Tomcat and Apache2 support of the distros I've tried.

I find Gentoo great simply because of Portage (not because of the overtuning capabilities that some people seem to use it for, but for easily enabling features during install time that other distros don't compile into their binary packages).

Ubuntu is currently my favorite. I spent about a year trying all the distros I could find. Slackware OpenSuse Fedora Gentoo Slax Knoppix Debian and many many others. I liked most of them and if a friend hadn't showed me ubuntu I would most likely still be using Fedora. The thing i like best about ubuntu is how easy it is to get it working and keeping it working. The package manager is easy as hell and has had every single application I have tried to find. With fedora I love yum but it still had a lot of problems with it and no great user interface like synaptic for apt and it didn't have as large a repository as ubuntu had. (this was fedor core 3 so a lot has probably changed.)

Also the community is wonderful my sound was not working in Quake 3 so i went to the ubuntu irc channel and 5 minutes latter i was playing Quake 3 with sound an a permanent fix in place.

It has been a while since i have ventured out of ubuntu and some time when i have some free time i will have to try some of the distros again see if they have changed.

I'm a big fan of Ubuntu and Fedora. I find that both work very well, but take different approaches to things. Fedora, IMO, has more bleeding edge things integrated with its builds, while Ubuntu seems to stay slightly more behind, in order to make it a more user-friendly distro. Both yum and apt-get seem to do the job extremely well on Fedora and Ubuntu, respectively.

I'd love Slack if I could get it to work.

I'm giving Gentoo a go. It looks good so far!

I would have to say debian using the net install. That way you can add only the packages you want and since it grabs it from the net, you can get the latest versions.

Xubuntu is great simply because it's fast.

Mine would have to be SabayonLinux. It's Beryl/Compiz's official distro. It's got the eye candy of beryl, and the power of Gentoo (the underlying code).
It's real easy for beginners, and it has KDE and Fluxbox for those who like it.

I used it a long time ago, but that amount of proprietary stuff Corel implemented in it (don't ask me what purpose that served, forgot it) made it incompatible to pretty much all the other big distros out there so it was hard to look for help in forums or get some software running on it.
It ran nicely as well, but if the distro itself is crap (sorry), then that doesn't help much. I'd rather stick to generic distros that are somewhat common or a distro based on one of the common ones.

I like everything Debian-based, because of the APT/DPKG system -- with RPM I have had some strange dependency problems, every big installation in an RPM-based distro would need me to manually resolve dependencies... Also RPM has tons of package managers, and Debian just has two for .deb files, which are almost the same. :-)
