This is fantastic, good job!
But Zenwalk (from Slackware) is missing! please put it in, it's a top-20 in distrowatch.
Also puppy is missing, which is another top-20.

great, but could you also make one for the BSDs? you could just put it below this graph, but keep the difference between distro and derivate in mind ;)
thanks

cool!
wikipedia has all the info, but to get started (in case you have no clue about bsd):
there are 4 free bsd4.4 derivates out there: freebsd, netbsd (the original two), openbsd and dragonflybsd. dragonflybsd is a derivate from freebsd4 and openbsd is a derivate from netbsd.
there are many distros of freebsd and few of the others.
there are also gnu/kfreebsd distros (debian + ging) and one gnu/knetbsd (debian).

yes that looks good, but it is rather complicated with all version included...
and it only contains derivates (i.e. "distros" with modified kernel and base), the "distros" are missing (note that many bsd-usern do not like the term "distro", but i nevertheless use it to describe other os that have an unchanged kernel):

freebsd-"distros":
-PC-BSD is a FreeBSD distribution designed for desktop use with simplified package management and a graphical installer
-BSDeviant is a live FreeBSD distribution that can fit on one Mini CD-R.
-ClosedBSD, a distribution aimed at firewall and NAT services.
-The FreeSBIE project is producing live CD distributions of FreeBSD, similar to the Knoppix distribution of Linux. The FreeSBIE project also includes a toolset to help you make your own FreeSBIE live file systems and CDROM's.
-Frenzy is another FreeBSD based live CD, mainly oriented towards Russian speaking users.
-PicoBSD is a one-floppy version of FreeBSD.
-m0n0wall is a FreeBSD-based embedded firewall package.
-pfSense is a firewall/router based on m0n0wall and FreeBSD.
-FreeNAS is NAS server based on FreeBSD/m0n0wall.
-DesktopBSD is a UNIX-like, desktop-oriented operating system based on FreeBSD. Its goal is to combine the stability of FreeBSD with the ease-of-use of KDE, its default graphical user interface.

dragonflybsd-"distros":
-fireflybsd.

netbsd-"distros":
-NewBIE

openbsd-"distros":
-Anonym.OS
-OliveBSD
-microbsd
-ekkobsd

projects with *BSD kernel + gnu-tools:
Debian GNU/NetBSD
Debian GNU/kFreeBSD
Gentoo/FreeBSD
Gentoo/NetBSD
Gentoo/OpenBSD

you could show the difference of distro and derivate with different colored lines or something like that!
thanks for your work!

Foresight is based out of rPath, once named Specifix, which was based out of Red Hat before the Fedora 'split', and, other than that, Foresight was available way before FoX!!
