I have gone for Arch, but I also have experience with Fedora and Debian which are great.

There are about 500 of these threads. The best distro is the one that allows you to be the most productive. Currently for me the answer to that is Mint.

I want nothing to do with Unity, never!

I like Arch. It's minimalistic but allows for expansion if one so desires. I also was able to lock it down enough for my grandmother that she can use it without screwing everything up. I simply prefer it; by no means am I comparatively saying its better than any other.

I prefer Arch, but have to say that it really requires its own partition (or standalone computer), granted, that isn't totally its own fault. VMWare Tools just don't currently work 100% for it (using the open source version of them from pacman), and Gnome 3 only runs in fallback mode, which is alright, but not the greatest.

With any luck VMWare will support 3D acceleration in Linux guests soon. Then the only complaint I will have with arch as a guest is that VMWare tools don't work with it natively.

I have used Fedore, and while it works well with VMWare tools and has the same fallback mode for Gnome 3, I can't say I am completely sold by it. I prefer pacman or apt-get over yum (though I suppose I could change that out).

Outside of Arch and Fedora I use Ubuntu. Though I despise Unity (window manager). It is simply NOT what I am looking for in a window manager... at all... Gnome 2 was significantly easier to use and less frustrating and I believe Gnome 3 to be an improvement on that.

I am currently running Ubuntu with cinnamon. However I am thinking about moving to mint next time they update.
