Not sure if this is right place for this.
The LQ distro downloads "most downloaded over last 30 days" shows R.H. 9 Shrike as most frequently downloaded. This is supposedly umsupported and well out of date, some 7 or 8? years old.
Also in the top fifteen are several other (well?) out of date distros, Fedora core 3, Mepis 3.3, Fedora 6, Debian 3.0r2.
Any ideas why these are so popular? Who would want to download R.H. 9?
Out of interest could the kernel for R.H.9 be updated to 2.6.2* to enable it to run newer hardware?
