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.

They may not be the most accurate, when even statcounter and netapplications vary by a large amount, but the fact that they show over an order of magnitude in difference is too much to ignore.

Over 7 million downloads of 12.04, in the first 24 hours following release. Mint can't come even close to that, especially not with Ubuntu having professional support, and becoming largely adopted in enterprise due to its management tools.

Mint is a solution looking for a problem. Don't like unity, but want ease of use? Run kubuntu, xubuntu, gnome Ubuntu, or any of the other offshoots.
Clutching to the dead gnome2 as though it is some sort of sacred altar is ridiculous.
