If I were able to re-vote in this poll, I would vote for Sailfish OS.
Unfortunately there's no indication of the owner of each vote, so I can't reset your vote. I can however remove one vote from the option you voted, and add one to Sailfish.

The more I read up on it the more it appears that they may have already conquered the largest portion of the 'headaches' associated with getting Linux working on a handheld phone.
I agree. The only problem is that X-based programs won't run under Wayland, apart from that it looks really promising. I hope that it will be available as a free release too, though I might decide to buy a license if it won't be too expensive.
