| Just over two thirds of respondents said 
| that they were using some sort of 
| compositing window manager for 3D effects 
| on their desktops. Approximately 37 per 
| cent of users chose Compiz and 22 per cent 
| preferred KDE's KWin window manager.


2009 Linux Graphics Survey Results

,----[ Quote ]
| Next up we found out which video adapter / 
| graphics card brand(s) were being used by 
| our survey participants. NVIDIA was the 
| most common brand at just over 7,325 votes 
| followed by ATI at 6,010, and then Intel at 
| 4,543. VIA was just at 243 while SiS / XGI 
| was halved at 105 and Matrox managed to 
| come in at 109. Of those that participated 
| in the survey, 68 were using some other 
| brand. These results show NVIDIA commanding 
| about 40% of the Linux systems followed by 
| ATI/AMD at 33% and Intel at 25%. Compared 
| to last year's numbers, NVDIA lost a point 
| or two of its market-share while ATI/AMD 
| remained roughly the same and Intel had 
| gained about 4%.

| looking over the results there is one set of
| numbers in particular that jumped out (though
| there are a few other interesting figures
| too). Below is a prelude to the Phoronix
| survey results that will be published on
| Monday. The below graph shows how the ~14,000
| respondents during our month-long survey
| responded to what Linux graphics survey
| driver they were using.



2007 Linux Graphics Survey Results

| For the past month we had been running the 2007 Linux Graphics Survey at
| Phoronix where we polled users to find out what display hardware they use,
| what their driver choice(s) are, and their other preferences as it pertains
| to Linux desktop users on the visual front. We received over 20,000
| submissions from this survey and have the results to share with you on this
| Thanksgiving here in the United States.

| Last week our annual Linux Graphics Survey ended. There were over 14,000
| submissions this year to the eleven questions we asked pertaining to X.Org,
| Linux desktop usage, and graphics hardware. In this article are all of the
| results from this year's survey.
