Debian Based Linux Distributions

I am somewhat surprised with the number of Linux distributions with Debian roots. A total of 129. This list doesn’t even include all the Ubuntu variations like Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, etc. I am using Linux Mint and it’s not even on the list. So here’s the list of 129 distributions courtesy of Distro Watch:

  1. It’s a lot – granted. But you have forgotten to weed out the discontinued distros like Zen, Libranet and Linspire and more.
    Not sure what your message is though, so it might be on purpose?
