Re: Distrowatch Ranking

A couple of days ago I mentioned that MX's 7 day DW page hits was 1300 more than Manjaro at #2.

The gap is now 2400 hpd :eek:

Re: Distrowatch Ranking

A belated congrats to the dev team for getting MX to #1. Please keep up the good work.

As a footnote, if you look at today's 7 day ranking you'll see the MX page had around 1300 more views than Manjaro at #2.

Smokin'!
