Actually it's only been at the top of the 7-day hypometer for the last 4 days (since the KDE edition came out), not months, as can be evidenced by the fact that we're not top of the 30 day version. We were top in the first couple of days after main edition was released too, but boo's KDE implementation seems to be doing the project proud given that many new features of mint were reviewed when main came out. Either way, we're on the march toward distromination
Just be aware that distrowatch ranking is only indicative of how interesting a distribution is over time, not necessarily an install base.
EDIT: additionally, in most of the other length listings, Mint is the only major one that is increasing, some achievement.
