Ubuntu 9.10 for me. Been running it since 8.04

Its going to be hard to beat Ubuntu simply because of the support that can be found for it. Being the most popular, it has the largest community and chances are any problem your having will have already been encountered.

That is not to say its the absolute best, but it sure is nice! If you like a little more eye candy, try Kubuntu or Mint

1. Arch Linux running openbox because it only gives you want you need to boot to a command line. The rest is up to you to add.

2. Ubuntu 9.10 with minimal xfce for android development because it's easy.

Running 8.04 on my main PC still. A little old, but still a champ. In Linux, if it ain't broke don't fix it!
