Adjusting using the number of votes / number of threads per year in each forum (popularity), I get that Slackware got slightly more votes than Fedora. Debian got more than Slackware for both desktop and server. The numbers for Arch and Mint are inaccurate because of the very low number of threads and possible recruitment of voters. Ubuntu got plenty of votes and has plenty of threads.

Code:
		threads	years	threads/year	desktop	server	desktop	server
Slackware	468.865	11	42.62		249	190	5.84	4.46
Ubuntu		74.312	8	9.29		264	76	28.42	8.18
Mint		4.549	4	1.14		142		124.86	
Fedora		106.395	10	10.64		62		5.83	
Debian		120.899	10	12.09		169	143	13.98	11.83
Arch		4.907	10	0.49		71		144.69	
RHEL		52.803	10	5.28		51			9.66

If the cars were still the same technology as in the 1980-ies I would do the tune-up. Replacing a head gasket is not my favorite job but I did it several time. But please, tell me what "Suck, Squeeze, Pop!, Phooey!" refers to!.

Edit: Ah, I know. Those are the 4 cycles of a 4-stroke engine. But I have never seen it referred to like that.

Edit2: and how do they refer to a 2-stroke engine?

Thanks!

I doubt Sadie Carnot would approve of such a non-Stirling expression, but it is more descriptive than adiabatic and isothermal on a PV diagram and makes your Otto-mobile go around!

How do they refer to a 2-stroke engine? As an outlaw biker, we always called them rice-burners, among other things...

Thanks for that one, brianL. I'll consider your suggestion.
At the moment I'm really happy with Slackware, OpenBSD, and Debian.

I'm used to the second best in everything: women, jobs, life in general, etc, etc, etc...so I'm sticking with Slack. I hope the other member who found my post helpful does, too.
