It just show the level of interest within the selected time period (number of clicks) and doesn't mean people are using it. However, DW is a good way to keep MX in the public eye, especially when there are new releases, updates or important announcements.

Yes, if we go back into English history, we will find the statement attributed to Disraeli : There are lies, damn lies, and statistics. We need to very careful when we look at the analysis of quoted results. The downloads of any newly released OS, should be measured over months, even years. Not just the few days after a release.

Statistics can be useful, but their interpretation must be done carefully.

What will contribute to MX's success in the long run (IMHO) is awareness. Getting MX visible enough so others are aware of it.

It's a great distro, and this is one that I fully intend on sticking with because it is so versatile, friendly and fun. DW is a good avenue for visibility, but making use of social media and other options will get MX 'out there' and I think will build a greater following.
This is like Deja Vu all over again.
