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.

While it is probably true that Ubuntu has a gazillion more users than Mint, there has been a noticeable migration away from Ubuntu, which is a big trend reversal.

Ubuntu looks like the one distro really growing ...and targeted by 3rd party vendors now.
