Best Selling Powerplant On 777?

Can anyone tell me which is the most popular (best selling) powerplant used on the 777. PW, GE or RR?

It think its split 1/3 almost evenly. GE had a very slow start but has been gaining market share rapidly as they have won sole rights to power the 773ER and 772LR. PW has not won a new customer for a long time, RR likewise was losing new customers, though Air NZ went with the Trent 800. If you look at Boeing's order charts, it list the engine chosen...

The GE-90 is gaining rapidly, but I believe the Trent series still commands 40% of the market.
