Weird, google keeps giving me a "bad request" error, even when I go to the
trends section manually and try to search myself. Pain in the butt.

I don't doubt that Ubuntu is very popular, I figured that out just by
lurking on this list. But I'd definitely trust the google trends more than
distrowatch. All things relative, of course. I would expect based on some
of the angst I've heard about the new "unity" shell that a fairly popular
distro making some very questionable and disruptive design choices to spike
the trends quite a bit.
