LOL, I might have agreed with you more EB if you weren't currently running Neon and being hypnotised by the glitter like a magpie with a shiny milk bottle gold top. Mmm .. can't resist the shine :P ;)

Congratz with a great distro and also great ranking on DW!

What exactly do they count on DW? Hits on their own page or hits on peppermintos.com homepage?

Hits on the peppermint section of their page I presume .. it's certainly not hits on our page, even we don't track those, so there's no way they could ;)

The distrowatch rankings are all just a bit of fun and shouldn't be taken seriously, they're certainly not indicative of reality .. someone has obviously lately set up a bot to keep hammering away at the Manjaro link because there is NO WAY they're the most popular distro.

In reality I'd expect Ubuntu is bigger than all the others combined.

And then most people don't go to distrowatch for their distro.

We'll shoot up the ranking only for a short period because they advertised the new release on their front page so people would have clicked on it .. and I purposefully chose the rankings just over the last 7 days, so it'll be badly skewed by that fact.

As I said, just a bit of fun :)

Thanks for the congratz though stratleray :)

big thanks to the "pepp-team"!  ;)

for myself, i don't know...
maybe i am a little bit disappointed...  :o

i love PM8 respin. it runs great, has for me no problems, and it looks and feels very nice...
the out-of-the-box-experience is awesome...

it is hard and sad to say, but PM9 is not near as good...
i really miss the "peppermix-theme" (the new one, based on arc, makes it all bigger, and sized it all up) and some new "Ray Bilcliff's"-wallpaper...
i know it is just the look & feel, but it is somewhere important to me...
anyway, thats just me. in the end of the day you can customized it to the way you want...
i have to tweak more settings to make PM9 working great like PM8 does (for example automount)...
maybe it (PM9) needs a little more time to me. don't know if i should upgrade my PM8 respin...

anyway, again: great job! please keep up the good work!

Hmm!

Theming, you'll never please everyone .. but we try to make thinks as easy as possible to change.

The "Peppermix" Gtk theme was badly broken in Gtk 3.22 .. so it had to go I'm afraid .. if you wanna blame someone, blame Gnome, very few older themes work with Gtk 3.22 :(

indeed, i try it (copy the peppermix-theme to PM9)...
looks horrible...

currently the peppermint-grey-dark-theme looks o.k. to me...
normally i prefer blue, but the blue one ist too much blue...  :P
maybe i have to tweak the colours, to my preferences...

Yeah, Gtk 3.22 (as used in the 18.04 base) broke the vast majority of older themes .. hence the new ones.
