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%).

"I don't know, is the standard desktop of OpenSuse KDE or Gnome? If it is Gnome (like for commercial Suse), then maybe this is a part of the higher Gnome numbers."

According to this survey, OpenSUSE users prefer KDE dramatically (72% vs 22%) :

(This is why the combination OpenSUSE+GNOME+Evolution+Firefox etc mentioned in the KDE dot article is viewed with so much suspicion, by the way).

I'm not sure what steps were taken in this survey to ensure that minimal cheating occurred, though.
