Is there any data to show which Unix or Linux is the most popular on servers? I've heard people say FreeBSD is the most popular -- is this true? How about other Linux distros?

I love linux, and wished I'd used it years ago when I was learning computers. There is an unkown adventure when using opensource. You like creativity and innovation, you will like linux. Plus, it will teach you areas about computers and technology that some of the other popular OSs left out. I am sure you have heard the term, "one size does not fit all".
We are very familiar with Linux and its relation with UNIX.But most us of don’t actually know what are differences between the two.
Linux is called Unix-like and is not a true Unix operating system.Linux is a Unix clone written from scratch by Linus Torvalds.
If you use Linux instead of Microsoft Windows, its free availability may well be a deciding factor. But the fact that virus and malware contamination are less likely to take down your Linux computers are no doubt essential influencing factors as well.
If you are a long time user of Windows or Mac and
want to try Linux, there is a high chance that your first distro will
be either Ubuntu, Linux Mint or Fedora since these distros are very
popular. However, there are some other distros that are more suitable for beginners in my opinion.
During recent years, many people have touted the ease of use that comes with Linux Mint compared to virtually all other distributions. As such, Linux Mint is now one of the most popular distributions out there, and almost as popular (or in some terms more popular) than Ubuntu.
Today, when I checked the archives of the websites of the Linux distros, I was really surprised to see how different these sites looked back then. Here are the screenshots of the websites of some popular Linux distros when everything just started.
In 2004, the main color theme of Ubuntu.com was somewhat red, not orange like what we see today.
