This past Sunday we started our first-ever Linux Graphics Survey that looked at the usage of X.Org display drivers, hardware, and the display features being sought after by Linux desktop users. In less than four days, we received over 10,000 survey submissions! This survey will be going on until November 21, so if you haven't yet participated you still have plenty of time to do so. But for those of you that have already taken the survey, what are the results so far? Well, below are the percentages from all of the responses collected before 10:00AM PST today. In Late November when the survey has ended, we will present the final results.

If you haven't yet taken this survey, you can take the survey here.

==============
Which type(s) of video adapters do you use in your Linux system(s)?
==============

Dedicated - PCI: 5.36%
Dedicated - AGP: 30.39%
Dedicated - PCI-E: 30.82%
Integrated - Desktop: 9.28%
Integrated - Notebook: 24.13%

==============
Which video adapter brand(s) do you use in your Linux system(s)?
==============

Intel: 15.17%
ATI: 31.87%
NVIDIA: 48.16%
Matrox: 1.41%
SiS / XGI: 1.61%
Other: 1.75%

==============
Which video driver(s) do you use in your Linux system(s)?
==============

Intel: 13.23%
Radeon: 12.89%

Avivo: 0.33%
RadeonHD: 0.95%
NVIDIA: 42.22%
NV: 4.51%
Nouveau: 0.72%
VESA: 3.37%
XGI: 0.13%
Other: 2.79%

If you add up the ATI drivers (Radeon, fglrx, Avivo, and RadeonHD) the total percentage is 32.98%. On the NVIDIA side with their binary driver, the 2D NV driver, and Nouveau their percentage leads at 47.45%. These totals closely aligns with the results from the previous question.
