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%.

No, Ubuntu and Debian aren't the _same_ distro.

RHEL and CentOS are indeed the same distro (bug by bug and feature by feature). I'm not talking about derivatives, instead they are exactly the same except that CentOS doesn't have any Red Hat logos.

In short, CentOS is built using the same SRPM packages than RHEL is built.
