Page Hit Ranking
 Data span: last 12 months (up to 09.17)

Rank 	Distribution 	HPD*		Originally from			My opinon
1 	Mint 		2743=		Ubuntu-based***			Very good, stable, complete and powerfull (with many extensions)

2 	Debian 		1912=		Original (much used for servers)Very good, for purist and servers

3 	Manjaro 	1614>		Arch-based**			Very good, stable, robust, and Arch-based, which is a sign of quality, rolling-release so always up-to-date

4 	Ubuntu 		1423=		Ubuntu-based***			Very good, very good hardware support, good repositories and very good community and tutorials

5 	openSUSE 	1194=		Suse				Bof, it's own model, appreciated in Germany (and originally from there)

6 	Antergos 	1039>		Arch-based**			Very good ?, seems good because of Arch-based	

7 	Fedora 		1000=		Redhat (public)			Very good, historically one of the best, in the Red Hat environment

8 	Zorin 		983=		Ubuntu-based**			Seems very good, Not free, 19$ or 10$, Ubuntu-based which is a credit for support and workness
It has a Windows-like graphical user interface and many programs similar to those found in Windows. Zorin OS also comes with an application that lets users run many Windows programs. The distribution's ultimate goal is to provide a Linux alternative to Windows and let Windows users enjoy all the features of Linux without complications. 

9 	elementary 	920=		Original			Good ?, special custom desktop environment and custom apps

10 	deepin 		901=		Debian-based*			Good, simple, powerfull (simple, powerfull, supported and workability)
Debian-based (?!?!), aims to provide an elegant, user-friendly and reliable operating system.

11 	Solus 		766>		Original			Mid-range, totally built from scratch, everything special : custom desktop and environment managers.

12 	CentOS 		722<		Redhat Entreprise (but free)	Good, stable and robust, efficient without commercial support.
Typical CentOS users are organisations and individuals that do not need strong commercial support in order to achieve successful operation. 
CentOS is for people who need an enterprise class operating system stability without the cost of certification and support. 

My favorite ones :
Ubuntu-based or Arch-based, for support and compatibility and ease-of-use, and for support, workness and powerful efficiency, respectively.
Ubuntu-based : 	support and compatbility
Arch-based : 	power, robustness and support

1 	Mint 		2743=		Ubuntu-based
4 	Ubuntu (Lubuntu)1423=		Ubuntu-based	
8 	Zorin (paid)	983=		Ubuntu-based
10 	deepin 		901=		Debian-based*

3 	Manjaro 	1614>		Arch-based
6 	Antergos 	1039>		Arch-based

My favorite ones, conclusion :
Mint					Ubuntu		(the BEST, popular, seems to work very well)
Ubuntu-variants(Lubuntu, Xubuntu, LXLE)	Ubuntu		(historically motivated)
Manjaro					Arch		(seems to be very popular, one of the best Arch-based projects)
Antergos				Arch		(seems to be alsy quite popular, maybe one of the best Arch derivatives)


The others, quite good, but original or from a particular familly, not so well supported (hardware supported).
