"Ubuntu has been the most popular Linux distribution on
desktop systems for sometime now and according to Google Trends
data, Ubuntu probably is the first ever Linux distro to overshoot
popularity of Linux itself. And now, Ubuntu is steadily increasing
its market share on web servers as well. According to w3techs.com
statistics, Ubuntu is now the 4th most popular Linux distro on web
servers and growing at a much faster rate than its competitors.
"Percentage of Web Servers Using Ubuntu Nearly Doubled
"Ubuntu has been the most popular Linux distro for desktops for
a long time and now the percentage of web servers running Ubuntu
nearly doubled in a single year. Ubuntu runs on 4% of all web
servers now. That figure was 2.6% only an year ago. As you can
infer from the graph above, Ubuntu is also the fastest growing
among other popular Linux distros."
