That's surprised me .. I got the original climbing high, but I didn't think there'd be that much interest in the respin except for some people who wanted to dual boot with Win8/8.1/10

Not that I'm moaning or anything.....

It could be there are a lot of people who want to dual boot with Win8 or higher.  As you know, it can be hard to find distros with UEFI support, so that could be drawing people in.   8)

I haven't found any other distro that delivers so much, while packing so little - Peppermint all the way  ;)!!

This is great news.  Congratulations, and a big thank to all who made this release possible at Team Peppermint.  I hope Peppermint will stay in the top ten category at DistroWatch.  It should.  Peppermint 6 Respin is, by all standards, a world-class release.

scifdude79, what you and PCNetSpec posted above (about dual booting) is an interesting idea.  You guys could be right about that.

It this is so, I'd say this a terrific way to introduce Windows users to Linux! :)

Don't read too much into those figures, they are fun to see but most of it is simply because we're on the distrowatch front page at the moment .. the Distrowatch charts only really mean anything on Distrowatch itself ;)

I'm happy enough where we are now .. well enough known but not yet overly burdened with walking examples of the greater internet f*ckwad theory.

I'm not a specialist in Linux, I only 5 years of experience but my opinion is that Peppermint is much more than other distro actually believe that the future belongs cloud computing and Peppermint offers more... is my point of view... :)

Yeah, really.  After all, Ubuntu still claims they're #1, but DW tells a different story.  :))
