The number of distros over 1000 hits per day keeps rising. Only a little while ago it was ten. Now there are 13. I have no doubt this means more people are coming to use GNU/Linux and shopping for their personal distro. That’s what I did when I was ready to explore GNU/Linux. Distrowatch is number 626 on Netcraft’s list of popular sites, right in the neighbourhood of Tomshardware.com (601) and Wikipedia.org (650).
