As 2012 Dawns, Mint Leads the List of Top Linux Distros
Times change, and so do popularity trends in Linux distributions....

is it true?

while uncle Mark continues [developing] on unity and gnome 3... clap clap clap to mint guys (from a debian guy :)

big ciao to everyone!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Old article already (December) but yes, we think it is true. The introduction of Unity meant a 40% increase of Mint usage according to a blog post of last year.

I guess it comes down to how much faith you put into DistroWatch as the only information source. Enjoy
If you don't like it, make something better
If you can't make something better, adapt
If you can't do either ball your panties up and cry.

Complaining is like masticating most anyone can do it.
However doing it in public is really hardcore.

Even if the Mint usage weren't higher, Distrowatch clearly shows that more people are interested in its Linux Mint page, in "Last 6 months" even twice as much, if you don't count Kubuntu(etc.).
