Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

Outside of K/L/X/Ubuntu positions on Distrowatch (yeah, not entirely representative), Wikimedia seems to have started tracking different DE variants of Ubuntu since October: http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/2011-10/SquidRepor...

A bit early to tell, and/or the October detection might have been not very reliable (or maybe K/L/Xubuntu really are that niche?), but should be worth following.
