According to Jeremy, this is the most popular poll of all, perhaps unsurprisingly.
Looking at the thread, and smiling a bit at the noob grenade someone threw, it looks like Mint is holding its own but it's going to be a tough battle with Ubuntu, Slack, and Fedora. It's really hard to judge the relationship between the thread and what the voting might currently look like, but a big thanks to everyone who's voted so far (regardless of for which distro). These things are only interesting with a significant enough response.
Secretly, of course I'd like to see Mint win, so please take the time to vote if you do too, registration's a doddle, a less than five minute job.
One interesting thing is how the lack of a separate root admin account puts some users off, which I'd definitely understand for a server distro but I'm not 100% sure how it constitutes a disadvantage on a single or even multi-user desktop box. *Shrugs* perhaps I'm too much of a noob
