Linux "Ubuntu, once the darling of desktop Linux and the overwhelmingly popular choice for newcomers, may soon lose that role to Mint." I switched to Mint KDE, and have no intention of going back. By the way, KDE4 is finally good (don't hit me, Aaron) - fast, fluid, stable, pretty, and thanks to its versatility, a joy to use after a few hours of tweaking. Just... Please, unify Plasma and the regular widget style. This is insanity.

Wikipedia, as one of the top ten sites on the web, is as good of an indicator as we are ever going to get.

http://stats.wikimedia.org/wikimedia/squids/SquidReportOperatingSys...

From Wikipedia's Traffic Analysis:

Linux Mint 11 M 0.01%
Linux Ubuntu 1,189 M 0.69%

It's not even close. According to these stats, Mint is behind not only Ubuntu, but Fedora, openSUSE, Debian, and Mandriva.
