Which Linux Distributions Are Dying?
I just read Louis GrayÃ¢â¬â¢s post titled Ã¢â¬ÅOn the Web, If YouÃ¢â¬â¢re Not Growing, YouÃ¢â¬â¢re Dying.Ã¢â¬Â It gave me a chilling realization about web services. Like everything else, what goes up must come down. This must apply to Linux distributions too, right? So, whatÃ¢â¬â¢s happening with Linux? Which distributions are growing? Like Louis Gray, IÃ¢â¬â¢m going to use data from Google Trends. People searching the name of Linux distributions on Google can be considered new users. After all, wouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t experienced Linux users already know where the websites of the big Linux distributions are?
