Which distribution does have best market share rates?

Is it still CentOS?
I'm guessing Ubuntu server has already overtaken others. But I'm not sure.

Is there a reliable document about this?

CentOS is still the leading linux distribution being used. Ubuntu has gained market share but still has a lot of catching up to do. More details can be found here - http://w3techs.com/technologies/details/os-linux/all/all

these are only web servers and only top 1 million websites as per the site. It is very hard to judge- I think Debian is number one –  jet Dec 23 '10 at 18:16
    
since most market surveys tend to rely on which OS ships with the market, it might be difficult to get exact numbers on linux distro. In that case, web servers might be the best sample available. –  Pulkit Sinha Dec 24 '10 at 6:05
    
yes, web server could be one to measure this. By the way, do you know when the document was written? I can't find it. It is much more important thing. –  Benjamin Dec 26 '10 at 8:52
    
I think it is a continually updated statistic. The dates on the graphs seem to indicate that. –  Pulkit Sinha Dec 26 '10 at 9:45
    
Wow, Ubuntu is still 10%? Very surprise :) Thanks anyway. –  Benjamin Dec 26 '10 at 10:12
