Linux Foundation's Desktop Linux Survey Results

DeviceGuru (1136715) writes "While the Linux Foundation's third annual desktop Linux survey doesn't officially end until November 30th, the number of daily respondents have shrunk to a trickle and the Foundation is working on analyzing the results. This is an early look at the raw data. For starters, almost 20,000 self-selected users filled out this year's survey compared to fewer than 10,000 in 2006's survey. Not surprisingly, the Ubuntu family of Linuxes is the most popular among organizations, at 54.1 percent. This was followed by the Red Hat family — RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux/Fedora/CentOS) — with 50.2 percent. The Novell SUSE group — SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) and openSUSE — came in third, with 35.2 percent."

139.5 percent? (1)

Err the addition in the article adds up to 139.5% I even double checked with a calculator! Actually it was Windows' Calculator, so who knows how accurate it is.

First link wrong and a link to the survey (1)

Linux Foundation is linux-foundation.org, not linuxfoundation.org as the first link suggests. The survey can be found here [linux-foundation.org] if you wish to participate.
