The Most Popular Linux Distros Of 2018

most popular linux

2018 has come to a close and it is time to look back and see what were the 100 most popular Linux distros (distributions) of the past year.  We gathered our list from Distro Watch.  I find it amazing to see how Manjaro has come to dominate over the past year while Linux Mint has remained near the top.  Two dark horses that have made the top 5 are MX Linux and elementary while the once dominate Ubuntu has slipped to the number 5 spot.

Where is your Linux distro on the list?  What are your thoughts on the list and do you find any of the numbers surprising?
