Red Hat - I have tried Fedora back in my distro farming days but the closest I ever got was a lengthy run of Mandriva/Mageia.
SUSE - tried Open SUSE in Virtual Box but never got anywhere with it.
Slackware - I've installed it once or twice but never stuck with it. Not sure why. I used Vector Linux a lot though - great on real old hardware.
Arch - now we're talking. Arch is the one parent distro I would use in preference to its spin-off distros like Manjaro. Still have it installed on one of my machines.
Debian - I'm all over this. I use Debian and at least 3 of its derived distros. Debian isn't as interesting as Arch though.
Gentoo - No. Just no.
To sum up - if I had one parent distro I'd choose above all others it would be Arch.

What Linux floppy distros did you try?
What a long strange trip it's been. Well, probably only 10 years for me.
