"I don't know if that is a good news or bad news, but
Ubuntu is going to be more popular than Linux itself according to
some statistics via Google Trends and Google Insight.
"Google Trends is not an authentic source of popularity index,
but it can definitely give you a lot of pointers on what future
holds for Ubuntu and Linux. As you can see from the above Google
Trends screenshot, popularity of Ubuntu is almost same as that of
Linux in 2010."
