Debian Linux users are quite spread out

Found this pie chart at NetCraft:

It was really educational for me to see the distribution of known sites running Debian Linux. In the U.S. it’s really tiny compared to everywhere else. I can only attribute that to RedHat and it’s strong ties with the commercial sector. While Redhat isn’t that bad I prefer Debian much more if I’m going to run Linux. The upgrade path of Debian is very smooth. I’ve slowly upgraded a Debian machine I had for months without a major hiccup even up to a new kernel version and major release difference. Redhat it seems harder to do this right.

However, if you ask me just run FreeBSD instead if you’re on x86.
