Linux Yeah, it's the day of double-dippin' today. And, the contradiction couldn't be bigger. In one corner we have one of the oldest and most respected distributions, and in the other corner we have the sometimes controversial but immensely popular relative newcomer. Slackware 13.37 and Ubuntu 11.04 have been released.

I've been tracking the stats of DistroWatch visitors since November 2010.
http://distrowatch.com/awstats/awstats.DistroWatch.com.osdetail.htm...

In 01.11.2010 I saw these stats:
49,1 % Windows
43,2 % Linux
15,8 % Ubuntu

Today the same stats are:
47,2 % Windows
44,7 % Linux
11 % Ubuntu

So Ubuntu seems to be on the decline in desktop use.

On the server side there seems to be an opposite trend for Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is clearly the fastest growing GNU/Linux distro for servers.

Or maybe, contrary to popular opinion, Ubuntu users don't need to visit a site about other distros because they have already found a distro they're happy with.
