Favorite Basic Clone? You Tell Me!

I ran this poll over on Facebook, but I wanted to collect some more responses.  Since this is my year of "Back to Basic" I wanted to hear about what you are all playing and enjoying.

So please, answer the survey below and let me know.  This is 100% anonymous and I am not tracking anything but the choices you make.

I believe I have the top choices here, but there is also an "Other".
Note: I am considering Swords & Wizardry its own thing for the purposes of this survey.

Why is part of the survey in Japanese?

That's strange. I don't see it. Send me a screen shot if you can.

Eh, I put S&W Core anyway, since it seems to me that it's very much like the Basic era games, but I also marked a couple of your pre-selected choices. Though, if it were just the D&D "track" of pre-WotC games (as distinct from AD&D), I'd probably put Delving Deeper at the moment.

Fixed it...finally. For some reason a bunch of Google products (including Surveys and Forms) have been using Japanese as a default language on my computer. That's now been corrected.

I listed two - Basic Fantasy and Labyrinth Lord. I love using Labyrinth Lord (actually we use the Advanced Companion as well, so it is sort of a mix of Basic and AD&D1st) - it is the system we use at home, when we aren't playing AD&D2nd.

However, I have been doing a lot of "intro to roleplaying" sessions at public libraries lately, and I use Basic Fantasy - why? Well, it is easy to understand, and the book is so cheap (under $5 on amazon) that I can afford to buy copies for all the players to keep (I always give away a set of dice, also). My part to grow the hobby.

Oops, I'm sorry - I added S&W before reading your comment about it not being considered part of the survey. If you can remove my response, please do.
