I definitely see things that the elementaryos project is doing that seem more right than wrong. They're doing a great job.

I use Mageia because Ubuntu would not install on the second drive where I wanted it to go.
The disk I had on the floor was Mandriva and have been with Mageia ever since.

Linux Mint won sole possession of the title for the first time ever. It must be due to the easy install and remaining with an attractive pull up menu. What is keeping me from going to Linux Mint is the plan to use systemd in the next major version. Slackware has its core following due to its stability, performance, and longevity; but it does take up more time to setup and has a small repository. Ubuntu lost almost 10 percent from the 2014 awards poll. This may be due to a dislike of Unity.

Also, MX Linux could continue to gain in popularity. This is due to having an attractive looking desktop and staying away from systemd as the default init. Since I'm not being able to install most modules in the compiled Xiphos 4.0.4 in Ubuntu Christian Edition 12.04, I'm on my way to switch that install to MX Linux MX-15.

I know when I do an update I see Trusty Tahr a bunch while the update is running. I would assume it is a *buntus desktop distro?

That's what I figured. Mint for me is a much more user friendly O.S. than Ubuntu. I didn't know beans about Linux a couple years ago and jumped in with both feet-using 12.04 Ubuntu with the "Unity" desktop. I almost threw in the towel several times but stuck with and sure glad I did. Left Windoze 2-3 years ago and never looked back.
