Your TuxRadar distro match is CrunchBang
Linux Format says:
This Debian-based distribution ships with the lightweight Openbox window manager. It's got Gnome Mplayer, Gimp, VLC and its web browser is equipped with flash plugin. The distro has AbiWord and Gnumeric, and scripts to install LibreOffice and Dropbox in its menus. It uses the Synaptic package manager and a modified Debian installer.
Verdict: Snappy Debian-based distro that works well on older machines, and can be easily fleshed out for relatively newer ones.
Yeah but I found it interesting though that CrunchBang came top but not really surprising.
It is very interesting to see how each option affects your distro choice. If I want a completely bleeding edge distro and leave the "Ease of use or ultimate configurability?" option in the middle, I get Debian. If I move the option a little closer to Ultimate configurability, I get Arch. If its a little closer to Ease of use then I get Manjaro. I get Ubuntu if its completely to the right and Gentoo if its completely to the left. The choices seem to make sense except I think Fedora should replace Ubuntu. IMO, the former is more bleeding edge.

BTW if you wish to contact me, send me an e-mail instead of a PM.
An interesting exercise. I got Slackware first, then SalixOS after making some adjustments, then Debian after tweaking it more.
I would agree with anonymous on the Ubuntu/Fedora thing.
Very interesting, I get Arch when I say I do not care about the package manager what is not really true as I would prefer apt I think. Then Gentoo (ouch), Slackel (why not), Debian (yay).
Let's change that to apt: the winner is Debian! (perfect) I have to say the tool is not bad.
I think it would be really like this. I am a Debian guy but if I would not care about apt I would indeed opt for Arch.
