They stopped the poll when redhat 5 was released, when redhat had about 50
to 100 more votes in the poll (1 or 2% more of the vote, in other words). The
problem with that poll was, they basically stopped it when they felt like it.
If they had stopped it a day earlier, debian would have won..

Yeah, that's sort of theimpression I got. You don't see a huge volume of
debian postings on usenet, but we basically tied redhat in the poll.
