The article on this link shows that while mint has picked up in popularity quite a bit, still...compared to ubuntu itself cannot match ubuntu's popularity as far as size goes ( even with unity and all)...

I thought we had put this one to sleep a few times already!

1: Ubuntu has many more users than Mint and garners much more traffic on the web (outside a certain niche website dedicated to linux distros).
2: The Mint page is the most visited on Distrowatch but keep in mind Mint only has one page for the main edition and all the iterations whereas Ubuntu has separate pages for the main edition, lubuntu, kubuntu, xubuntu etc.

Mint is great, that's all ye need know and care for - it's not a popularity contest :)
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!
