That's strange because D_O's blogpost on flatpak option in MXPI only came out on 14 September, as did DW's mention of it.

MX is 9 in the rankings with Manjaro 1st in the views and 73 in the rankings. Overall, I think it means next to nothing.

Damn those "statistics"! I was 100% certain they did mean something; 75% certain they meant almost something (or, at least, something else); and about 37.5553% certain they meant nothing at all! I guess I was wrong then? Oh well; back to work. :snoopy1:

@ boombaby. Never to worry about it. I think it was the British politician Benjamin Disraeli who said "there are lies, damn lies, and statistics". The trouble with those from DW is that every page can give a different outlook. Regardless of what they say, it is fun to read them, but not to take them seriously. However, it seems that MX is doing well.

Cheers,
Gordon - who studied statistics at College and still does not believe them.
