What is the best CPU-mineable altcoin to mine Today, after factoring things like difficulty, exchange rates, etc. Keeping in mind, I have zero interest in the altcoin itself, just investigating using a few idle CPUs at my disposal to generate alts to trade for BTC.

While I'd prefer a coin with an open source, Linux client, I can be open to any other choices that may avail themselves.

So please, suggest away!

I leave my spare CPU cycles to hash Monero.  On MinerGate you can also merge-mine a choice of at least two other cryptonight coins.  Primecoin looks good though and they're implementing side-chains soon.

I have found mining NXT the most easiest and therefore "best" solution for me, because of the multipool I dont have to do anything. Gpus do all the work, NXT's just keep flying into my wallet.

+1. Monero offers something Bitcoin doesn't (anonymity) - it should have some legs, whereas many of the others don't offer any unique values (cough, cough ... DOGE).

I mined primecoin at launch, made quite a few of them... sold them off for a combination of LTC and BTC, though.

How does its profitability stockup against Monero's these days? Think I'm going to point a few comps at a monero pool when I get home unless i hear a compelling reason to try another instead...

I'm buy and hold only - mining altcoins just to get more BTC or USD isn't interesting to me. Obviously the market does what it wants, but I'm looking for long term building of the Monero ecosystem.
