| as the user-friendly distro for newbies.

| Unlike many surveys that land on the desks of IT journos each week, the one
| done by Canonical and Red Monk was based on a very large number of responses.
| People from 6,819 companies answered questions about the operating systems
| they have deployed in their organizations and how these OSes are used to
| support mission-critical and other workloads. (You can see the results of the
| survey here). About 55.5 per cent of those polled for the Ubuntu server
| survey came from Europe, with 28.4 per cent coming from North America, 1.7
| per cent from Africa, 5.2 per cent from Asia, and 5.2 per cent from Latin
| America.

| different — and far wiser — goal for the survey.
