First thing the usually disclaimer, that doesn't mean much, but at the same time I'm excited that there's interest even without a new release. Usually you see numbers growing immediately after a new release.

Hum... I'm glad MX is climbing on the distro watch ranking... but I see it in 4 th place (on the last 6 months) and that's what people get when they fire up distrowatch.com... The ranking over 7 days is positive, but unfortunatly not what most people get to see... There are many ways to search Distro watch, and for example, it's a very positive thing being on the top well ranked (9.5 from 400 reviews!)
Maybe in a few weeks time, MX gets to climb one more place on the 6 months ranking? :-) It deserves it...

A point to note is the page hits per day has jumped by more than 200 in just over a week, thus the interest in MX Linux has risen by 10%.

:happy:

I wonder how many hits are people from here visiting to see how many hits there are? :happy:

I think that people are inherently "stable" in their outlook. A bit of good press about how rock solid MX is and the fact that we still get essential apps kept current; combined with the superb level of support received from the developers and "wam bam thank you maam" you have a hit on your hands. It would be nice if Distrowatch meant something more than clicks on a page but the "new" activity here seems to confirm interest turning to installs.

Well done to all involved. You deserve success.

Keep spreading the word of MX Linux. I wonder how many downloads of MX Linux.

Some of the jump could be a result of the mention in the latest Linux Format magazine.

I watched "switched to Linux" on you tube. It was a good review for MX 17.1. I could tell he was really impressed with it and so I have tried it. I think it deserves it. I hope it reaches number 1
