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.

Mandr^#@.
The only distribution in the list to serve nobody else than pirates.

The other distributions have an actual, considerable potential in progressing the open source community.

The arguable ones:
Ubuntu: A damned complete distro for the office and home with a fair amount of Linux fun. Not necessarily the most technical- but I haven't tried out many distros quite as complete and ready to use with all the "necessary" tools. An easy switch for someone wanting to try out Linux.
Linspire: Provides a very easy switch for Windows users to a much greater extent than Ubuntu. Has what Windows users are comfortable with, and nearly spoonfeeds them.

These attributes are not necessarily important to myself when choosing a distribution, they do provide a noteworthy step towards Linux progression.

Mandrake (to me) feels to be multimedia-oriented. Considering Linux's open source (free) mentality, this seems to really attract the same people that are interested in the idea that all media should be free. This isn't very positive for Linux in my opinion.
