    Thanks for the link! So I will just wait a little bit longer for the next minor version

    Archlinux' pacman uses libarchive to extract the tarballs and it has some problems with 10.0.0 tarball, which should be fixed with 10.0.1 version.
    Ah, sorry.

    I'm actually wondering why it takes for Arch Linux so long to update to Mesa 10.0

    I'm as well hoping Ubuntu includes llvm 3.4 to offer a good open-source experience with AMD graphics.

Linux is a steep learning curve to those migrating from Windows, I remember being bemused by Aptitude (wait...how exactly do you install a program? You don't go to the website of the maker and download an installer?...weird!). Whereas now, as a much more savvy Arch user, my first port of call is the Arch webpage/forums which answers most of my queries. Google is my second port of call.
    Google trends is NOT a measure how much people search for an item, although it can do that also. This said, google trends was only an example. There are also counts based on website visits, several professional researches about the subject and even big companies who choose to support Ubuntu (initially) because of their own research indicate ubuntu is used the most.

    Noob friendly? LOL, you make it sound like only noobs use ubuntu. Probably not a good moment to confess my homeserver is running Ubuntu server 12.04.

    I to remember being bemused by aptitude and the file system... it just didn't compute that an installation didn't end up in one location

    Google trends and each other serious search and trend method support this fact. (Spoiler: distrowatch is not one of these with its page count method).

    Or may be because of the alleged large userbase of Ubuntu?
