don't get me wrong - I do not have a problem with ubuntu (i have several installations and did some ubuntu training allready). I am just wondering WHY everybody talks about it all the time - yeahh you might be right ... the server is free, there is a LTS every 2 years and Marky Boy has enough money.
But i disbelieve that Ubuntu is market leader
- to be honest, I think in Europe still SuSE is Nr.1 (but I don't know it for sure) - in the US it might be Fedora? Referring to distrowatch PCLinuxOS (a KDE Distro) is Nr.1., Ubuntu is Nr.2 ... anyway, it's ok as long people DO use Linux and talk about it
you're getting Distrowatch's results wrongs , PCLinux OS isn't the first distro at all !!!! , That's just Page Hit Ranking and nothing more , it doesn't mean that everyone who hits on that page's using that flavor
plus take a look at this link http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=major
, just take a look at the order of distros i also suggest you to take a look at this link http://desktoplinux.com/news/NS8454912761.html
as well , although it's not that of recent survey but it's the most recent that I've found around the web
, it's just eight months old
