8) Justing mentioning it as an interesting topic of discussion. I don't think I can remember a time when Mint wasn't in the #1 slot. I supposed the times are changing.

It's a putsch!!! ;)

Indeed a rare occasion. I was impressed by Manjaro but stopped using it since used too much ressources.
They stopped making the 32 bits version also (last was 17.0.6).
Was the best Arch distro I tried though.

It's just page hits at D-watch.
I think the big 4 order of Linux OSs in actual use is probably still the same.

Debian
Ubuntu *counting all the flavors
Red Hat *RHEL & Fedora
Free BSD *Slackware

Goes down pretty fast after that, the rest being mostly derivatives of one or more of the above.
I could be wrong. Ubuntu may be #1 overall, but not even close on servers. That would Debian, with a number still actually growing.

I'm not saying I didn't believe the site had it that way on their list.  I just don't believe it reflects actual clicks by actual people.

It's all a matter of opinion across the web.

I was impressed by Manjaro but stopped using it since used too much ressources.

Right.
I went by something like this when I was looking for my first Linux OS...
https://fossbytes.com/best-lightweight-linux-distros/

If I didn't mind using a resource hog for an operating system, I wouldn't have nuked windows 10 and installed Linux Lite.
We only get one shot at this thing called life, let's make the best of it.

When you have 11 versions of your OS, you better be No.1! And by versions I mean DE. Combined arch's would be double that. The collective clicks alone...

Manjaro is not my favorite Arch distro. But I want to give credit to Manjaro for one thing. They were once heavily (HEAVILY!) criticized for not keeping up to date with security patches. That they cleaned up. If I remember (it's a few years ago) a whole new team took over the distro. Might be wrong on that. But always fun to see a shakeup in the 'big 4'. Real or just on paper.

Debian is the clear "core/backbone" winner having Ubuntu flavors using it and having spot 2-3-4 (currently).
I don't see charts on this though. Would be Interesting to have a "core" and a "DE" chart on DistroWatch ;)
Always fun to see the familly tree or periodic table on the subject :D :

Wonder where we would rank for the distros that offer one DE and soon to be one arch (x64)?

 :)  Loved the 'periodic table' representation.

Take a look at this, a different representation, not sure how "refreshed" it is:

Pathological tweaker, I used to distro-hop (A LOT)   ...until I installed LinuxLite.

That chart is below the periodic table on the Distrowatch page. ;)
