      It curls/wgets its page on distrowatch whenever it boots or something like that. Also when something is at the top of the list people will tend to click it more since they're lazy and will just go for whatever seems to be the best.

        And this is why only morons care about DistroWatch rankings. Gentoo is ranked 61 yet it's one of the most popular distros.

        But obviously when you're an experienced Linux user, you aren't going to be browsing DistroWatch looking for something new. DistroWatch is for Linux newbies who want to find a different beginner distro to hop to. It's why the most popular choices are all beginner distros.

      Alright, I'll ask what everyone is afraid to. WHO THE FRICK USES MX LINUX?! Literally who.

      Whatever the case with their ranking may be, MX is essentially Debian stable with an array of usability tweaks, and repos for more up-to-date software (including crucial shit like DEs and WMs). MX and LMDE are probably the easiest ways for a complete gnube to get Debian up, running, and working with their hardware OOTB, and that's why the people who install these distros tend to continue using them as daily drivers.

      MX also puts a lot of effort into making sure Xfce is bug-free, to the point where MX w/Xfce is a much better experience than vanilla Debian + Xfce, Xubuntu, or Mint Xfce. For example, nearly every Debian or Ubuntu-based distro currently has this problem with Xfce: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1383379/xubuntu-desktop-visible-after-suspend-before-lock-screen And it has been left unfixed for 3+ years. MX builds Xfce without upower integration, as the Xfce devs intended ( https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-settings/-/merge_requests/20 ).

        Such a weird meme. Where did this stupid idea come from that Arch users have to spend hours tinkering with their computer? Once you've installed Arch (which only takes a couple of hours) it just works. Honestly it's probably even easier to maintain an Arch system than an Ubuntu system - at least in the former case you never have to deal with the hassle of upgrading to a newer version.

            Yes, a couple of hours to install a system that will last you for years. Still less than the amount of time it takes you to sign up for a Canonical account and register your PC, remove snaps, and do a system update to the newest version of Ubuntu every 6 months.

            Everyone who doesn't wanna be on the bleeding edge (most people) just use the LTS which are supported for 3 years. And upgrading isn't hard, just remove any PPAs you've added and ad them back when you've upgraded.

          >Gentoo is in trouble
          No it isn't. It's already been explained to morons like you that DistroWatch statistics are not the same as popularity. Gentoo users are people who've been using Linux for years, are happy with their distro choice, and even if they wanted to change it wouldn't be to some random shit they found on DistroWatch.

          DistroWatch is for newbies who distrohop to something new every week because they think Linux is a toy. These people are looking for a distro that comes pre-configured with everything they want, because they don't know how to configure a distro themselves. Naturally these are the least likely group to use Gentoo.

          Besides, Gentoo is the only mainstream source-based distro, and there will always be a demand for at least one source-based distro. Gentoo isn't going anywhere.
