I tied for Ubuntu, Debian, and Arch. Never used Arch, I might have to see what it's all about ;)

Sounds to good to be true :P

Your ideal distro is:
Built for newer computers
Easy to use
Installed with a graphical installer
Only installed with a base system
One that detects your hardware for you
Packed with only 1 program for each application to save space
Full of the latest and greatest features that may take up processing power
Binary package based
Free from dependancy hell

here's how the distributions in the database match up to your choices:
Distro name Match %
Mandrake 8/11: 72%
Fedora 8/11: 72%
Knoppix 8/11: 72%
SuSe 8/11: 72%
Debian 7/11: 63%
MEPIS 9/11: 81%
Gentoo 7/11: 63%
Slackware 5/11: 45%
Ubuntu 8/11: 72%
Vector 7/11: 63%
Arch 7/11: 63%
Ark 10/11: 90%
LFS 5/11: 45%
EvilEntity 5/11: 45%

Based on these results we recommend you to try(if you haven't tried it yet):
Ark

I got a tie between Gentoo and Debian at 81%. Which kind of makes sense since I moved from gentoo to a debian based distro.

Tied: Fedora, Ubuntu and Ark (Yukk a KDE distro, I suspect that I would have ended as NLD instead if that was listed)

which seems quite accurate, since I've been spending every day installing Fedora or Ubuntu because I just can't decide.. it's really killing productivity.
