RedHat - SuSE - Knoppix
On occasion I will use the Knoppix Live CD (and now live DVD).
I've played around with the Live CD's for most distributions, but I don't consider that playing around (for a few hours) meets the criteria for acatually trying a distribution. I think one has to use a distribution for at least a couple of months, before it meets the criteria.
Hence I filled in only "3" on the poll.

I've used three as my main distro.
First tried Mandrake 9.1 for almost a year. Currently I use both Debian for three years and Gentoo for eight to nine months.
The two other distros I barely used.
I played with Knoppix for less than a week after Mandrake. And played with Ubuntu when it first came out, also less than a week. Although I always have a copy of both of them on CD.

Tried quite a few
About 26 if you count each derivative distro as one:
Mandrake (currently using 2005 LE)
Ubuntu (on another box)
Plus FreeBSD, Solaris, Unixware, and NextStep 3.3 for Intel
