Look at the names above us --Manjaro, Ubuntu, Open Suse, Debian and Mint.  All these distributions offer more than one flavor --some with at least half a dozen.  But, if we broke this down by flavors only, I'm certain this week we'd be number one in the category of LXDE.  No matter how we look at it, this is quite an achievement. :)
[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

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.
Wise words, I like where we're at too; top of the lightweights.  Lets face it, the lightweights are the well balanced class of distro.  Not so light to be classed as experimental.  Not so heavy to be classed as bloatware.  Our motto should be,  "Delivering More from Less"  ;D!

I don't think we should pay too much attention to what Distrowatch is saying lets stay focused on what our users are saying, Distrowatch will take care of itself

In my opinion PM6 is by far the best version on Peppermint so far but it's not perfect we can improve it but we wont improve it by watching Distrowatch we'll only improve it by listening to our users (and me of course) :)

lately I've noticed a quite a lot of new users coming on this site and Andy posted that a public library in Lancashire, England is using PM6, that's what's important and to me that says far more than Distrowatch ever can

So lets start looking at what's not so good about Peppermint and how we can improve it, I would start with artwork

If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs then you're not quite grasping the situation

You only have to look at whos forum is getting the most posts....

and that might simply mean that the Distro is crap and needs a lot of support - you need to dig down into the forums and see what is being asked and said...  Here they seem to be just peripheral problems with little tweaks and touches people want to do.

No Major Biggies, lots of friendly chat and banter and GOOD SOLID support where required.
