Do you have the statistics of what Distros have been downloaded, how many times, when etc? It may be an excellent resource to compare LQ statistics against those of sites like DistroWatch.

EDIT: should have looked at the page before I posted.

EDIT2: I wonder why Debian Woody has been downloaded 391 times in the last 30 days?

Please use the "Suggest Additions" on LQ ISO to suggest new Distros. This will ensure it's brought to the attention of the correct people.

It still intrigues me as to why DistroWatch gives LinuxMint a 2 -1 lead over Ubuntu,
and yet LM is not even in LQ's top 15 - either list . . .

I suppose that the stat's for DW are quite different from those of LQ.

The stats on DW are nothing more than a click counter and not representative at all, neither are the rankings at LQ. In fact, there is no way to get representative data on Linux usage.
