You do realize that upgrading kernels is not done huge endeavor, right? Before we got systemd, it was trivial, but now that everything had to be upgraded in lock step, so it's about 2 minutes past trivial.
>having the biggest portion of Linux's 1% desktop market share
Literally who cares, senpai. It's not even close to the most popular distro when it comes to the server market, where Linux is actually relevant.
Actually no. Did you even look?
Wikimedia even displays Ubuntu variants such as Kubuntu separately. Even then Ubuntu is the most popular behind Android.
Steam separates Mint, though it's unclear whether it separates k/x/edu buntus.
Ubuntu surpassed RHEL on the top 1M websites surveyed by w3techs.com all the way back in 2012, so it's definitely 'actually relevant' in the server market.
