Linux Ever wondered how current Linux statistics compare to statistics from the '90s? Well, Gigaom has a nice infographic prepared by the Linux Foundation which compares the two eras. Also, props to Arch Linux for being most of the Other 15%; that's not bad for such a barebones distribution.

Only 15% said that they "didn't use Linux then".

Something seems weird to me in the 'Linux Distributions Used' section: on the 'THEN' chart, Ubuntu has 6%. Did Ubuntu exist 20 years back?

The chart doesn't really qualify what constitutes "Then". the other subheadings skip around on years so for all we know it could've been a "When you first got into Linux vs now" type question. For that matter most of those distros didn't exist 20 years ago.
