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%).

Didn't the article mention something about most of the traffic coming from digg and another german site. Well has anyone ever been to the linux section on digg...It's the home away from home for Ubuntu's more or less an extension of Ubuntuforums and always has been.

A point that is very overlooked; it's even a running joke on digg that the most inconsequential Ubuntu links are automatically dugg up.

I talked to three people I know that use linux, and they're all running openSUSE with KDE. If I ignore the fact that the survey sample is statistically irrelevant, I can post an announcement claiming Suse and KDE have achieved 100% market share.

There's now 4 kinds of lies: Lies, Damned Lies, Statistics and Web Surveys. ;)
