    Good thing for the 'Other' option - There are probably too many Linux distros to list. :) My current favorite is Mint, but I've also used CentOS and I like that for a server OS. SuSE (currently called OpenSuSE) was always one of my favorite distros too.

    Debian seems to have everything going for it as a server distro, at least in my fields of work. CentOS became "funky" in version 7, replacing several perfectly good tools with confusing alternatives (probably better for the newb, but not for the seasoned user).

    For desktop use I'm going to stretch the definition of Linux a little bit and say Android-x86 or RemixOS. But I just really like Android.
