With these polls having existed for years, I'm sure this has been said before and I just haven't seen it. But I question the usefulness of declaring a winner (referring to Ubuntu) with 15.68 percent. Were it left to me, I would say it's in the spirit of free, open-source software and of libertarianism to acknowledge that the votes in that category were too diverse to allow a clear winner. Because to create a majoritarian or even large pluralitarian winner, you would need the distros or other contestants to outcompete and eliminate some of the others. Free software doesn't do that.

But I suppose everyone knows that after so many years of polls, and that would be why this thread has moderate response after more than a month.

I count the "winner" as a technicality, but the poll as a useful look at how many users each option has.
