Debian by far. It's the most widely used. I like Ubuntu the most. Mint is okay...

OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. Fedora used to be my favorite until Fedora 18 with its new installer and issues with proprietary nVidia graphics

I'm currently using the current version of Linux Mint MATE. Runs well and it's light on resources. Eventually, I'll move on to more advanced distros. I have even thought about going from Linux to a FreeBSD machine in the future.

I've used PC-BSD in the past. I can recommend it as an "easy" entry point to FreeBSD.

I have a Dell Mini 1011 and have tried various Linux flashdrives. Wifi works out of the box with Crunchbang 10 Statler (haven't tried the new one), PCLOS Minime from about 2009-10, Unbuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 (but not any newer Ubuntu) and Bodhi Linux (not sure what version, but the flash drive I made is about 2 years old). Touchpad also works with all of these. I think the Ubuntu also has a few sound and flash issues. Crunchbang seems to work the best overall.

... plus this - Wrap 920

Once all the kinks have been worked out of these glasses, we may not even need a desktop monitor in the future. And someone will come up with a really good I/O device. Even if just a much improved virtual keyboard and mouse.

as for favorite Linux, have tried several, but have gone back to the Ubuntu fold - 12.04 LTS.
And Parted Magic.
Shoot, ... almost forgot to donate to them.
