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%).

Very, very self-selective sample.

The majority of Ubuntu users use Gnome and this poll was posted on the Ubuntu forums.

The majority of Suse users use KDE and this poll wasn't posted on OpenSuse or KDE forums.

That may not explain everything, but it explains a lot.

By the way, I think that both Ubuntu, Mandriva and Opensuse are doing lots for desktop linux.
