Linux distros ranked by number of subreddit subscribers:
Not trying to prove anything with this, you can interpret the data any way you like.
@codewiz Still far more accurate than the curiosity ranking on DistroWatch…
@TritTriton Haha, I know! I went to check DistroWatch for a list of distros to check on Reddit, and #1 was a distro from Greece I had never heard of 😂
@angristan I was _sure_ I missed someone's favorite 😅
@codewiz should be noted that r/linux itself has something like 467k subscribers
r/raspberry_pi has like 1.6 million but it's impossible to know how many of those people are actually using linux because they want to, looks like it's predominantly a "look at the cool thing I did with tiny hardware" show and tell space
Incomplete list ... missing my distro of choice, Pop!_OS, with 10+k subscribers.
Also, Kali (10k), Solus (7k), Void (3k) ...
I'm sure there're others, too ... it's probably actually a fairly good "popularity" test, but should try to get all the distros. Otherwise, it seems biased.
@nattiegoogie It's indeed biased towards the distros that occurred to me while compiling the list 😅
