The Linux Desktop Survey 2007 results are available. Ubuntu tops the most popular distro for this year, and as a surprise Gnome and XFCE have increased in popularity. Gnome even takes 1st place from KDE, probably due to the success of Ubuntu that uses it as its default desktop environment.
Another surprise is that Wine enough and have resources plenty to run Windows at a decent speed if needed and with a higher rating then Wine (not to dis this fabulous project, I think it is tops the list for ways to run MS Windows applications, I would have thought other solution based on virtual machines would be more popular. Today's computers are certainly powerful enough and have resources plenty to run Windows like this with a greater compatibility (not to dis Wine, I think it is truly great).
