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%).

Definitely Ubuntu played a major role (if not THE role) in putting Gnome ahead of KDE. I just can't wait KDE's response.

It *might* have played a major role in putting Gnome *usage* ahead of KDE. But this survey is useless to support that conclusion.
Read my thoughts on it here (and btw. I wrote those in a year when KDE won even though I use KDE):
