Crunchbang Linux here. It's based on Debian, so I choose that in the survey. :)

I voted for Arch Linux from a personal desktop point of view. Its my primary OS on all my machines at the moment.

From a server point of view I would have chosen Debian however.

I'm not a fan of Ubuntu since 10.04 but I'm in love now with Elementary OS (based on 12.04 LTS - but the interface is what matters to me, looks amazing...). Other than that, I like Arch, Gentoo and Fedora ones

Were you correcting Tyler R.'s post immediately above you? If so, he did not need correction. Crunchbang proudly proclaims that they are a Debian derivative. (They use the phrase "proudly powered by Debian" repeatedly on their website and in their documentation.) Crunchbang was once based on Ubuntu, but the authors became unsatisfied with the direction Ubuntu was taking and switched to Debian a couple of years ago. The current release - Crunchbang Linux 11 - is based on Debian Wheezy. The previous release - Crunchbang Linux 10 - was based on Debian Squeeze. The previous release was the first one to be based on Debian directly.

That's only what I know of. I used it years ago. That's what I ever knew it to be. Thanks for the correction.

Sorry Mindovermaster; I didn't mean to sound too harsh in my reply. Like I said, Crunchbang was once based on Ubuntu. You made an honest mistake.
