They need to push their KDE version a lot more, as the Cinnamon and XFCE versions arent going to pull many people in, given Mint already has them.

Yeah, does seem that if they're going to capture any appreciable market share, they'd need to push what they do different to their direct-parent distro.

Their KDE version is far better than Mints KDE version.

I thought Mint stopped having an actual KDE version like 4 years ago or so?

Mint did stop their KDE version around 2-3 years ago but Feren took it to a higher level. Mint's was a plain jane even compared to their other distros.

They updated to the most recent 5.4 kernel, 5.19.3 KDE and 6.4.5 LibreOffice so its a good alternative to Neon.

They arent pushing their KDE version and havent updated their Distrowatch listing either so of course they are dropping like a rock.
