What is today’s most popular linux distribution?

[ Thanks to John Carl

“Linux distributions are operating systems that are
based on the Linux kernel. With this simplified definition in mind,
then perhaps the most popular Linux distribution is Android, the
leading smartphone OS in the US, which (as of August 2010) holds a
market share of 33%.

“Android 2.2 (codename Froyo) is based on Linux kernel 2.6.32,
while soon-to-be-launched Android 2.3 (codename Gingerbread) is
based on Linux kernel 2.6.33. But is it really the most popular
Linux distribution? We head out to Distrowatch.com and see where it
stands.”
