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%).

O please give it a break. Could we just drop the meaningless KDE vs GNOME wars? They're both bloated and none of them can do something the other one can't.

For all the useless "just disk space waiting" KDE apps, GNOME has an alternative, so that's nether a valid argument ;-)

It's just great to see, that this servey proves that GNU/Linux as a general purpose desktop system is growing in popularity or at least that more GNU/Linux desktop users have participated.
