Looking at the distrowatch website, I was curious as to how many flavors have been introduced over the years, but have failed due to lack of user interest, or finance, or some other reason. In short, they're no longer available.

lots. Look at this pretty graph (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8c/Gldt.svg) to see which ones ended (they have dots after them)

Or better, see this PNG generated from the SVG. (less crashtacular)

I think those graphs missed Caldera (SCO), which ended in a rather spectacular fashion.

Yeah I was wondering why I have not seen a new yggsdrasil in a long time.
