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%).

ut due to Ubuntu's popularity on the survey, it skews the numbers of KDE vs Gnome in favor of Gnome.


I wouldn't say it skews the numbers. It definitely has a significant impact, but "skew" indicates a kind of error in the result and don't think it does.

True, I was a bit unsure about the wording myself ;-)

There was some discussion about this on the DOT:

Worth a read, imho.
