Linux The title of the article seems completely wrong to you? Naturally it would, when you daily read something like this. But I do state all this stuff is being a big mistake, if not worse. I am sure, that Linux is now close to extinction, and still is getting closer and closer to the point of no return.

Saying that the market share is near zero is quite pessimistic. I don't think anybody has any concrete stats about this, as most people using Linux downloaded it for free. However, there is a new music player called "songbird" and it has a neat feature that lets you see how many of its users are running Windows, Mac and Linux. Here are the stats from it as we speak:

Users by Platform
Windows 81%
Linux 10%
Macintosh 9%

So I guess the people who claimed a 10% is not that off the track. Interesting also that the Linux number is higher than the Mac now...
