I think that's too ambiguous. For example "good support" will mean
different things for different people (is it about adding features?
fixing bugs? answering questions? anything else?). "Stable system" is
ambiguous too: does it mean "stable" as in "does not crash", or
"stable" as in "doesn't change"?

(and let's not talk about "Modern GUI": for me Gnome 2 is as modern as
Gnome 3 and KDE 4)

So, I've answered the poll, but my real answer is the following: if I
had to use a distribution with only 3 qualities out of all these, I
would be an unhappy user.
