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%).

Another thing to point out - the poll asked people not to promote it in distro-specific places like mailing lists. Several un-official distro forums, though, had threads urging people to vote for that distro. www.suseforums.net had such a thread and wouldn't remove it when I suggested that might be a good idea.

The forum moderators at the PCLinuxOS official forum and Ubuntuforums.org did remove such threads when I suggested it, and I removed two such threads from the official Mandriva forums.

So, it's also worth considering that when looking at the results.
