Debian Fastest Growing Linux Distribution

Over the last six months Debian has been the fastest growing Linux distribution when measured by counting active sites which contain the name of a
Linux distribution in the Apache Server header. In percentage terms Debian is closely followed by SuSE and Gentoo. RedHat has a far greater number of
sites but a slower growth rate, and actually fell this month, after making widely publicized and controversial changes to its licencing and security
update policy. A distribution name is present in a little over a quarter of Linux based Apache sites.
