It might be good to collect a variety of datapoints, not just what
desktop is more popular. For example it might be interresting to see
who is running hypervisors/virtualization, what external repositories
they are using, etc.

If it doesnt exist already, I think that at least in the next version
of OpenSUSE, you should have some sort of part of the install
procedure that reports the desktop being used to a centralized
database, and finds out how long the installation has been "alive".
This at least should happen every time the system does a zypper
update. That would allow you to have a more accurate census of how
many OpenSUSE boxes exist in the wild and what UI is being utilized.

We do have something like this:
http://en.opensuse.org/Statistics

It doesn't report anything on the "which desktop is more popular?"
topic, though.

Cheers,

Vincent
