As for Lindows (oops), Xandros, etc, these are rather small distributions. Since you care about popularity so much, you should know Red Hat/Fedora, SuSE and Ubuntu are far more popular.

This doesn't have to say anything about GNOME v. KDE popularity though. I used Fedora for over a year, and booted into GNOME exactly once in that year (okay, I confess, it may have been two or three times). I knew I preferred KDE, and while KDE didn't get as much attention from Red Hat/Fedora as GNOME the packages were still good.

For the record I have nothing against GNOME, if it's what you like, go for it. I've found I prefer KDE and the great thing about having both is that we each get to pick the one we like best. Same thing goes for having both Ubuntu and Kubuntu. I currently use neither, but being able to choose an install that defaults to GNOME or one that defaults to KDE just means more people will get the system they want right from the start.
