I ran across an interesting article about popularity of Linux distributions at:
More recent data show us in a better place and select openSUSE as best desktop distribution. https://www.linux.com/news/software/applications/810295-the-top-11-best-linu...
And also this perspective is worth to read
It has got a reason, that we have got such a difference between both articles/ rankings. 2014 has been a year, where we have got many new users (and customers). Many people have used Windows xp and didn't want to change to 7 or 8. And the end of support was April 2014. I was asked by many friends what to use. It wasn't difficult... openSUSE! Most of them have changed and are happy. The rest has changed to Windows 8 and I can hear a lot of stories about update problems and rollbacks by Microsoft. That's our chance! I can see a good future.
The other distributions have got the same problem with contributors. I am on a mailinglist for general German Linux women and Debian has created a program for getting new people to the community: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianMed/MoM
