What statistics please?

distrowatch is hardly representative.

Put Mint, Ubuntu and Debian and you have the bigger chunk.

Ubuntu and debian identify themselves, so what remains?

 Even if overall downloads would be more deb than rpm, then those with

"unknown" system would be rpm in majority,

You're based on what to say that?

Just look at the default browser in ubuntu or debian: The user agent
string is modified to contain ubuntu/debian. Thus all that
"statistics" is void, as it is not relevant for the decistion it is
used as argument for.

Even if the distrowatch statistics would reflect the real user
distribution, the biggest hunk of Ubuntu already is out of the
question - and the bias strongs shifts towards rpm.


This does make sense. If the script recognizes without difficulty all of the deb distros, then 
the default should be .rpm. Could someone test this with a deb distro + Google Chrome? Just to 
make sure that the script recommends debs. This will have to be tested again if the default is 
changed to .rpm.

I get the same results as Sigrid on my Mandriva. It recommends deb when I use Chrome.

5 minutes ago I put 'linux' as default.

For Ubuntu + Chrome it recommends deb since the user agent does
contains "Ubuntu". Mine is:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.7 (KHTML, like
