    If you are on a perpetual journey through the Linux eco-sphere (like me), I think you’ll find this article to be a worthwhile read.

    I recommend reading the entire article. The punch line is at the end.

    Having read this article:
    – IMHO vast majority of computer users never come to an idea of hopping Linux distros because the notion of Linux is unknown to them.
    – From minority of computer users (niche) who do hop Linux distros in search of a dexterous design and architecture never came across antiX 19 yet… Such as the author of the article…
    – How can this be secured in the constant flux of Linux landscape that good design and architecture continues when the original developers and concept leaders grow tired and retire? Their successors often mess up these distros so they gradually fall into abyss…

    @olsztyn Clearly the universe of Linux users is a self-selected population. Although it’s worth noting that android is Linux based (and that user base is huge). See: https://www.howtogeek.com/189036/android-is-based-on-linux-but-what-does-that-mean/

    As for the ‘conscious’ Linux community, Distrowatch (DW) has antiX at #12. That’s pretty good, assuming you believe the DW numbers.

    Yes, it is pretty good… But just IMHO (not to start a discussion with opposing opinions) a notion of ‘Linux community’ would mean all who oppose Windows, regardless how divided and contesting against each other are parties associated with every distro. Microsoft must be rather happy that fragmentation of Linux is self inflicted on itself by ‘Linux community’…
