Tomáš Pospíšek's Notizblock
- The graph comes from Debian's popcon
- it's displaying installed desktop environments (DE's)
- in order to find out which package is representative for a user running that specific DE I've looked at dependencies. The last package in the list was chosen to be "representative":
task-desktop -dep-> task-kde-desktop -dep-> kde-standard -dep-> kde-plasma-desktop | task-xfce-desktop -dep-> xfce4 -dep-> xfwm4 | task-gnome-desktop -dep-> gnome-core | task-lxde-desktop -dep-> lxde | task-mate-desktop -dep-> mate-desktop-environment | task-cinnamon-desktop -dep-> cinnamon-desktop-environment -> cinnamon-core
I've looked at a few other DE's: icewm, lxqt, .. but their install base is smaller by an order of magnitude.
Update: Some stats from Arch
