6. Desktop-centric distributions
After the change Ubuntu made with Unity, a number of distributions reacted by creating releases based on specific desktops. The likes of Bodhi Linux have gained wider popularity, thanks to Ubuntu 11.04 and Unity. Most of these desktops have been available for a while, but they only achieved their present success after Unity arrived. It has also boosted the popularity of such distributions as Xubuntu and Kubuntu — still Ubuntu Linux, but with a different flavour on the desktop.
