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%).

though Ubuntu was important for Gnome, I think your numbers are a bit 'weird statistics'...

I think these numbers simply show how Gnome finally catched up with KDE, the latter not having a release for 2 years now... I think it's pretty realistic to say the latest Gnome is pretty equivalent to the latest KDE. 2.20 might be a bit more usable, KDE 3.5.x might have a few more features, but overall - each is approximately as good as the other one. Of course, I expect KDE 4 to change that ;-)
