The 2010 Eclipse community survey [PDF] has just been released, and again Linux and Ubuntu is showing strong growth on the developer workstations. Some of you may remember my post on this subject last year.
From last year Windows continued its decline, while Linux continued its ascent as a developer platform:
Working from the ODS document that provides additional data, I then dug up the linux OS stats. Ubuntu has grown from 14.4% last year to 18.3% this year, or 56.1% of those running Linux as their development platform.
The growth is less spectacular as a deployment environment (which are always more conservative, no surprise here), with Ubuntu growing from 11.4% to 12.6% of all OS used for deployment, or 28.7% of the linux subset. In the same period, Windows remained stable.
