I think we will go over the top Saturday (US timezones) or Sunday at the latest.
Few days longer. Today Manjaro tried to run with additional hits. :)

Hi, I think popularity matters because the more popular an OS, the more people get involved and help find or fix security and stability issues. I wouldn’t use a relative unknown version of linux, and I wouldn’t use MX or Antix, if it weren’t an active community of developers and users like runwiththedolphin etc. running the project in a professional way (it shows by the quality of their work). Anyway, I have installed mx as my only OS in my laptop and my second desktop without any issues. I run Antix on a virtual machine in my main desktop because I need Windows 10 in it for visual studio and few other programs but have tested with the usb stick booting and MX works fine there too.

+1
Example when Arch Linux with its newness as rolling-release + AUR, moved from rank hit #34 to #12 within 1 year, experienced and skill-full users started to join. Without these additional resources it would have been difficult to manage.

The race is "slowly" coming to its end... 20 -->#1 :)

I was just there and saw that. MX is far ahead on the 3 month average.

My last prediction was wildly off but now I predict the big day will be tomorrow (in US timezones).
Will I cry when it's all over?
When I die will I see Heaven?

Just remember kids... what goes up, must come down. I can remember when Ubuntu was on top... Mint... Manjaro... all of them have had their fun. I'm not sure any of the ratings hype really makes a huge difference. The product and the people are what really count. IMHO. :bagoverhead:
