It’s difficult to build statistics on Linux distribution usage. Probably, the most popular method is to look at DistroWatch statistics. However, it only rank its own page hit, meaning it’s more a guide to people looking at information on their website.
The second most popular method is through survey and especially the yearly Reddit survey. Last year the survey got 8000 responses and the results suggested that Ubuntu and Arch Linux were the two most popular distros, with KDE and GNOME as Desktop Environment.
Well, the new 2014 survey is up. Participating to this survey will help us to understand how Linux is being used and it won’t take you long to answer it.
What will be the result this year?
