Is this a fact?
Is it the "world's most popular distro"?
Or is this just your own opinion?

Shouldn't you guys be more objective than that?
I have a feeling that for some time already, on my favorite OS magazine, "here say" tends to be promoted to "hard facts" through a very subtle gradual process.

I can see articles on how X dislikes Vista. Then some more articles on what X hates about it. And after a series like that, there comes a new articles founded on phrases like "the fiasco that Vista's release".

I could argue that Ubuntu is not the world's most popular distro and Vista release was not a fiasco.
But the burden is not on me to prove that. It should be on you guys to document your statements.

After all, you are the journalists, not me, right?
