Just got this into my inbox, and among other things,
Which Linux distribution wins?
A commonly asked question is whether we can distinguish the different
Linux distributions and provide some insight into their relative
popularity. Our operating systems detection can distinguish the Linux
kernel version, but not the specific distribution. However, many of
the distributions personalise the Apache server headers in some way,
and an indication can be had from that. Out of almost 850,000 web
sites that run Linux and provide a personalised server header
RedHat dominates with a 72% share. Its nearest rival is SuSE
with 10%, followed by Debian with 9%. No other distributions have
more than 3%, reflecting the strenuous efforts Red Hat make to create
brand identity and differentiation.
