this is a revised version of my earlier poll. it now contains an arch and an other option.
(like before, this contains no 'buntus because this is the ubuntu forums,)

SliTaz, Slackware, and CRUX.

I also adore NetBSD, but that's not Linux.

If no *buntus, I'd have to say Puppy.

I should mention that Foresight is also a very cool distro.

No Xubuntu or Zenwalk? Nothing with XFCE as default DE? (Arch as exception) Bah! Smelly poll! ^^

Yes, it's called Foresight Lite Edition. Unfortunately, it's only available as a 32-bit version, so if you've got 64-bit capabilities you're out of luck.

For me, it's Linux Mint....the most complete distro I've tried.

Other than U/XUbuntu, it's definitely my favorite.
