Linux It is not too surprising that Ubuntu came in first in DesktopLinux.com'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%).

I am happy that SUSE was a solid second and "Other Debian" a solid third (I didn't quite understand Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols when he put Freespire, Linspire, Linux Mint, among "Other Debian, aren't those Ubuntu derivatives?)
I expect an even bigger jump forward when openSUSE 10.3 is released. From what I have seen from Beta 1, it is going to be a killer distro. All problems which have being affected SUSE so far (ugly fonts, package management, slow operation) should be solved.
