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%).

The auto-mounting of removable media what you speak of has been in Debain/GNOME for quiet a while now, it's got nothing to do with the timing of Ubuntu. Ubuntu polished up for the desktop with there own features, Live cd installer from the desktop, migration assistant, Restricted drivers manager, Add/Remove manager.

Debian on the other hand just used the default gnome with their package manager thrown in. Debain may have the more "stable" packages but polishing up the latest release it where it's at and thats Ubuntu.
