Linux It is not too surprising that Ubuntu came in first in's 2007 Desktop Linux Market Survey, or that Firefox was the topmost browser by far. More interesting is that for the first time ever in the site's annual surveys, GNOME surpassed KDE among desktop environments (45% over 35%), with Xfce a solid third (8%).

On virtualisation

In third place was something of a shocker: VirtualBox, with 8 percent. Why a shocker? Well, here at, we like to think we've at least heard of all the popular Linux virtualization programs -- Xen, KVM, etc. -- but we've never heard of this one. Needless to say, we're going to be taking a closer look at VirtualBox soon.

And so they should! Virtualbox is a damn fine virtualisation solution. I've used it for a few months now and it's truly wonderful, every bit as good as VMWare for what I need.
