I thought a qualified "best" thread would be helpful to people. Sorry if I didn't include someone's favorite ROM, this was off the top of my head.
I would suggest that other people looking to get an answer to a "best" question, phrase it as a poll with a qualifier. I think ... think .... this is the best way to ask a question that will never not be asked without starting a flamewar.
Suggestions: Best Customization, Most Themes, Easiest to Use, Most Stable, ... ect.
This kind of thing every few weeks would help people that don't have the time to actually try every single ROM.
NOTE: I can't figure out how to edit the poll question to make it make more sense. So please imagine there is only one "is" and that you are supposed to share your answer with accompanying kernel in the comment section.
