"The majority"? Really?

I think maybe you're browsing the Arduino channel...

I don't personally use an Arduino, but they are the best microcontroller for beginner all the way through intermediate level projects, in my opinion.

It does sometimes seem that a particular kind of project sometimes seems to become inordinately popular, often this popularity is driven by a contest or challenge.
I remember when I first joined you could have been forgiven for thinking that the site was run by Knex, I don't recall any kind of Knex competition at the time I think it was merely coincidence.

None of my I'bles contain an Arduino and most of them got featured. So, there you go.

They don't have to. A lot of the more interesting projects tend to use them, as they tend to be the microcontroller of choice. What would you rather see?
