Xfce most popular Ubuntu desktop after only Unity and GNOME-shell
 
Hey,

http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/11/poll-result-15800-votes-cast-unity-named-most-popular-desktop/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaig n=Feed%3A+d0od+%28OMG%21+Ubuntu%21%29



Of course, one could note that, as an Ubuntu-oriented blog, it is more relevant to Xubuntu users than to Kubuntu users (seeing how most of the apps and themes featured there work better in Xubuntu than Kubuntu). Furthermore, one could note that it is not a battle and that the goal of Xubuntu/Xfce is not to steal users from other open source desktops, but to provide the best experience for people aligned with Xfce/Xubuntu's vision.



However, one could also choose to ignore all that and take pride in the fact that Xfce and Xubuntu are a popular choice among 8% of OMG! Ubuntu readers. Good job folks!
Best,

I personally know many disgruntled ubuntu users who are as frustrated as me about unity. Many ol'timers ( includig Linus Himself) has shifted to xfce. So the results are not at all surprising. Good job indeed by the xubuntu team.
