Pingdom has produced a nice article about the popularity of GNU/Linux around the world. They did that by using Google's search insight, and show maps for the popularity of Linux in general, as well as various distributions.

For example, here is the popularity of "Linux" (as a search term) across the world:

And here is the popularity of "Ubuntu":

More maps and interesting analysis can be found in the original article.
