No, the majority of those that write here.

That claim is as strong/weak as the opposite – only that Jos and
others backed-up their claim with some logical assumptions about the
technical means of today’s computer.

I mean that the group of people that read the factory mail list is not
representative of all the users of the distro. It is representative of
those that try the factory version and want to talk about it in a mail list.

You would have to ask at least in the main mail list, and also in the
forum, which has more registered users than all the mail lists here.

And even then you would not be considering the preferences of all the
users that do not participate in lists or forums, or that communicate in
other languages or via other venues. Or even people with limited internet

Also do not forget that all users do not have recent computers. One of
the Linux points is catering to more computers than Windows, not
requiring flashy new hardware.
