Obviuosly that is a short list, but it includes all the major ones, at least all the major ones I could think off. Its hard to hate the little ones that aren't unique in any real way. Plus, I am limited to ten options. So, let the flame war begin.

Linspire/Lindows would have been my pick before I tried installing Ubuntu. You should never allow the user to run as root (you also should be like Ubuntu and not have the root account enabled).

I just remember what whats-his-name in charge of Linspire said that all of us who say that root shouldn't be used for day-to-day stuff just say that and have no idea why. So my buddies and I promptly started a list on the board of very very good reasons why you shouldn't run as root. I believe I also started a thread here about that.

I guess I just hate Ubuntu more now because everyone loves it so much and its really really sucks.
