Everything else at Distrowatch is combinations and permutations. That's fine once you've sorted out the chaff.

mrpogson.com: Last week, evolution caught up with the Ubuntu juggernaut. After jerking people around with Unity, Wayland, Mir, and generally annoying lovers of Free Software with top-down stuff, Canonical drove more people to take a look at installing Debian GNU/Linux as suggested by the page-hit ratings on Distrowatch. That puts Debian GNU/Linux in #2 after Mint.

Xfce Resurgence

  • Releases, releases, releases!
    So it’s not that I’ve been quiet and lazy – I was actually busy preparing some releases and hacking on stuff. So here’s an update on what’s been going on and what’s to come.
  • Alternative Global Menu For MATE And Xfce: Vala Panel AppMenu [PPA]
    A while back I wrote about TopMenu, a panel plugin that provides global menu (AppMenu) support for MATE, then also included support for Xfce and LXDE.

    Development for the Xfce media player is back on! Well over a year since the last release, Parole 0.9.0 brings a fresh set of features and fixes.
