    This is a great look into the numbers. Not so good for Canonical though.... I thought they were a desktop OS? And that they didn't commit that much to the kernel because they were working on the desktop aspect? :cautious:

    Really unfair to judge Ubuntu with this. Its because of Canonical's hard work that desktop Linux is now being seen as a viable alternative to Mac and Windows. Also Jonobacon has clarified it well on his site on whats the real contribution of Canonical. The fact that Ubuntu's popularity makes Gnome one of the better circulated DE even though I for one would rather see KDE, this is solely because of Ubuntu having Gnome as default.

    Completely unrelated, but a user in the discussion there wrote “Ubuntu is an African word meaning ‘I can’t configure Debian’” HAHA cracked me up
