Debian has done very well along with its derivatives combined.

true, debian is quite hard to get up (especially X) if you have no clue where to begin, but as most things, once you get the hang of it, it's quite easy.

Of course Debian won't win. It is great at just about everything, but specializes in nothing. Besides that, it has comparatively little direct commercial support. I'd be willing to bet that in the end, if we add up all the votes of "Debian and Debian-based distros", that would come in first place.

Honestly, I'm ok with that though. I think it's an honor to have a distro that is so well built, it must be considered a "Progenitor" distribution.
Another correct prediction and clearly a huge win for Debian!
(Debian 250 + Knoppix 43 + DSL 7 + Mepis 96 + Ubuntu 176 + Xandros 27 + Linspire 17)

Debian and Debian-based distros give us a WHOPPING Total of 616 votes!!!!

Suse is not based on Redhat though it uses RPM.

as stated above SuSe != RH!!! I personally think that only Fedora can still be regarded as red hat, Mandrake is derived from red hat, but has grown away from its roots and has really become and independent distro. There are still significances between MDK and RH, but not like the Debian based distro's. Only Fedora is a true RH-based distro, it still contains what I used to hate or love about RH .
Allthough RH itself clearly has lost users (with this I mean in the public area, not the commercial), Fedora made an impressive jump.

Greetings and a HOORAY for Debian And Slackware!
