    In a past thread, the Phoronix member 'dust' provided what I consider a very good indicator of OS usage. The Wikipedia logs:

    http://stats.wikimedia.org/wikimedia...ingSystems.htm

    I don't see reasons to believe that these are flawed in any important way. Wikipedia is almost the perfect site to retrieve this kind of information from. Surely it's western-centric, anglophile and has an educational bias, but I don't see how this would affect the OS trends. For sure, it won't skew the Linux distro usage patterns. Also, since this is just counting browser hits, it will only count desktop machines, and not your hypothetical Unix render farm or backup server.

    There was another distribution map on the net a while ago that did show the popularity of each distro in their region. It did show quite a variance in what distro was popular where. Just off the top of my head I recall openSUSE being the flavor of choice in Russia and Germany, with fedora kicking ass in india, etc. I'm sure I posted it in some other thread here but one thing was clear that there really wasn't a clear dominant "universal" distro.

    I think Gnome probably does have the lead in western countries, but there's a huge # of users in South America and Asia where I think KDE dominates, and I don't think those users necessarily frequent places like Distrowatch. Anyway, who really cares about this. There's absolutely no possible way to settle this question, you're all just guessing and no one is going to convince anyone else because you all know you're just guessing.

    If you want to help freeing some little Gnomes look here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnoming

    There's also some other thing.


    Btw. if someone's interested in reading more about new, shiny KDE look here:

    I'm sure you will have some fun with next Gnome release, this time in Gnome-centric topic.
    Next Gnome release isn't that far away so hold your horses for a few months.

    No, apparently this thread is about guys substituting their penises with their DE.

    Retarded like you should be banned. You are the typical sexually repressed person who only talks about the same everywhere.

    Shut up!
