Tried PCLinuxOS, and nahh, in IMHO its just a dumb down version of Mandriva.

Cooker is the most exciting rolling distro i tried and LMDE the most stable.

Haven't tried Arch (yet!)

The closest thing to a rolling release I use is Slackware-Current, but it's not a true rolling release for the same reason Debian testing isn't.
Other Linux distributions may maintain a development branch in between releases. These development branches may resemble a rolling release because software in such a branch is continually updated. However, unlike a rolling release, these branches are intended to be the next release, and will be frozen and tested prior to such a release.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolling_release

So I guess my favorite rolling release is PCLinuxOS, even though I'm not using it right now.
