Actually for the supported releases trusty (EOL April 2019) and xenial
(EOL April 2021) Ubuntu GNOME is a flavour, for those releases Ubuntu
still ships with Unity. Apart from this such polls exclude the majority
or minority (we don't know) of Ubuntu users who don't stay with a
default of any flavour. I installed from the server image and unchecked
as much of it's default packages as possible and after that installed
what I want, btw. no DE at all, plain openbox, but with e.g. lxpanel (+

What's meaningful with an "informal, fun poll", let alone that this
poll is at least not announced at Ubuntu Studio users, Kubuntu users,
Xubuntu users, Ubuntu users and perhaps other *buntu users lists, too.
