I noticed something interesting on DistroWatch's 30-day distro ranking. EndeavourOS is #2, while Garuda is #6. I had not heard of those distros before; thus, when I checked on them, I realized that, like Manjaro (#3), they are Arch-based distros.
In the past, distros that enjoyed more popularity were Ubuntu-based. Before that, it was Debian-based and Red Hat distros the ones that populated the first spots. Right now, Red Hat's family is lower in the ranking.
I wonder what motivates those changes. I have not used an Arch-based distro yet. Is it time for me to try one?
