Interesting URL giving stats for an altavista search comparing OSs.
>From the Debian newsletter:

Debian rules! The Sucks-Rules-O-Meter technique tries to make
tongue-in-cheek testimonies about the popularity of software. The
frequency of combined terms in the WWW like "foo sucks" and "foo
rules" is analyzed and plotted from the results of a search engine.
Statistics of [29]operating systems show as expected a strongly
positive deflection for free systems like GNU/Linux and FreeBSD. The
investigation about the popularity of [30]GNU/Linux distributions even
points out the highest sympathy value for Debian with a large distance
to others.
