Is this a reasonable summary of what's left?
57 - 1e
157 - Basic.x
51 - 2e
3 - 3.xe
30 - 4e
35 - 5e

Is Basic.x the Part 1 House Harkonnen/Imperium of this Survivor?
Eh, if you want to equate 4 editions of D&D as "Basic." Most folks probably don't.

Another way of looking at it could be:
265 - Traditional System
68 - D20 System

Seriously though, the number of points that the traditional editions of the game have, vs. the number of points that the d20 System editions have (and the number of traditional editions eliminated vs. the number of D20 editions that have been eliminated) is interesting. I think it really speaks to the power of nostalgia, and the staying power of the hobby as a whole. And what people expect when they hear the name "Dungeons & Dragons"... some people were downvoting books purely because of the letters printed on the cover.

And it might explain why WotC shifted away from mechanical complexity in the 5e rules.

Once 4E is gone I am turning my sights on AD&D (1E)

I got a couple of SAD emojis for this and all I can say, is that since I read Game Wizards I can't help but think of the first edition of AD&D as Gygax's weak attempt to get around owing Arneson royalties by claiming it is a completely different game than OD&D or what would become Basic (which Arneson also got co-creator credit for despite not working on it - because it was based on his ideas!).
