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%).

Interesting results, I have to tell though, numbers based on votes only show the opinion of the specific visitor base. Nevertheless, probably it's a good estimate of the average user's opinion.

Regarding the higher numbers for Gnome: I think you owe Ubuntu a great deal of thanks and a wagonload of sixpacks ;)

One personal point: I'm glad to see Debian being the 3rd and Gentoo the 4th, nice.
