Desktop - Mandrake
Server - Tiny Sofa
LiveCD - Knoppix/PHLAK

Reasons - all are easy to install and configure and Mandrake is just easy to use
for an everyday desktop.And it plays games well.
Tiny Sofa goes from bare system to running server in 15 minutes.
One of the simplest servers to put into production and very secure right out of the box.

maybe this is late but here are mine

fedora now centos easy to install and use, centos easy to keep upgraded
ubuntu same reason
used to like suse, to much work to get it to work
mandrake very nice and stable, lots of support
so all in all I'll say so far centos is far and above the best. :thumbsup:

Ubuntu is nice and easy to install. Just beginning to play with it to get a better feel for it. So far I like it. Reminds of when Red Hat was still Open Source before Fedora Core
