That depends on the task maybe.

And I wonder why the article didn't mention it (only Ubuntu), but Debian is more populair on webservers:

Well, technically RHEL and CentOS are the same so this makes 38.6% for RHEL ;-)

But 21.0% Ubuntu and Debian 31.9% does mean that the Debian based distros at least won ;-)

Not only that but together it's more than 50%.
