netcraft shows os usage by number of webservers that's all!

solaris is mainly used for backend servers like databases and java appservers, linux is used a lot on embedded stuff, darwin in macosx desktops - none of which are webservers that netcraft would pick up.

freebsd being more popular than macosx is laughable (not that i'm happy about that).
