I beg to disagree that reduction in search volume directly means a
reduction in polularity. While less people are Googling for Debian,
if the activity in the Debian user and developer lists are something
to go by, Debian is not doing too bad. Granted that we could do with
popularity boosts, but I guess the loyal followers will always remain
and keep trying to pull in more people. :-)
