Linux It is not too surprising that Ubuntu came in first in'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%).

I started using Linux nearly 8 years ago and everyone still argues over the same stuff...gnome vs kde, vi vs emacs etc...haha, it will never grow old. Anyway to throw my .02 in, I'm unsure of the newbs who actually spout random stuff about kde being bloated know this but you do know KDE is broken into various packages, right? Of course you could just do apt-get install kde and have it install EVERYTHING but there is kdecore, multimedia, games etc just fyi. I was also a long time gnome fan back in the 1.x days...2.x just started getting strange release they would add in a menu editor then take it out another...I mean wtf is that about? Then they put in some crappy xscreensaver replacement, yes I know it can be changed but that is beside the point. GNOME just got dumbed down while KDE and its applications imho got a lot better. I have no doubts KDE4 will be brilliant. Oh and btw Debian ++ =)
