Some entirely observational, non-scientific and quite possibly
coincidental statistics: In my department (Physics) we have RHEL and
Windows on the lab computers right now. Also since this is a Physics
department, there is a significant proportion of Linux users (grad
students, postdocs, professors, administrators), who use different
flavors of Linux on their personal computers.

I have only seen 1 person in the last 7 years that I have spent here,
using Gnome. The rest uses KDE (even in the lab on RHEL computers) or
Windows.

Is this really coincidence? Are we (KDE users) really the minority?
