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%).

KDE uses CMake for various reasons.
The KDE guys said that autotools is too compicated (new developers have to spend too much time just figure it out rather than code something) and CMake offers besser portability (easy integration with Visual Studio and Xcode).
