I agree with you both, so how about two (or more) rankings? An overall
ranking and a last month ranking? Other interesting rankings could be
invented... by processor type, os, geographical region, network
connectivity, sexual preference, etc. All these would help maintain
interest during these long dry periods and provide excellent flame
war ordinance ("If you say Linux is so good, how come the Australian
vegetarians have completed so many blocks with OS/390?").
