Do you have any sources to claim that?
I work as a Linux sysadmin and I a vast majority of the sysadmins in my 
service (that I would consider as power users) run Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu on 
their desktop machine.

As of the server machines, we mostly have Debian sarge machines currently, and 
are in the process of switching them to sudo rights management, to refine the 
rights we can give to sysadmins, developers, marketting teams, etc.
