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%).

Well that's just a paradox, because the API is the DE.

And that is the problem. The API should sit underneath the DE. Libraries should be shared at the OS level or not at all.
