Well as that would be a really hard number to determine, if you go by what most actually say they use as users and corporations, its Redhat.

yea i thought so =\ ..i just got RedHat and im getn Mandrake and Slackware right now (i was thinking about getn Debian..buta im just too lazy to download all those iso ) im just trying out each distro to see which one i like most. im taking cisco acadamy 3 and 4 right now so i have a broad idea about how computers/hardware/networks work, my professor told me most jobs these days are looking for people who are multi-platformed, so i desided to expand and try out linux. so yea im just testing out which distro i like best so i can start using linux

the things are not related to a distro. any distro can look like anything if you want it to, and things liek command lines are always there, not ever gonna dissapear.
