Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu InfoWorld's Savio Rodrigues sees 2010 as a watershed year for Ubuntu, one that could herald meaningful enterprise interest in the OS, thanks to a rising tide of developers - and deployment servers - adopting the OS. "As with many recent trends in the IT industry, developers become ambassadors for products they enjoy using and have quickly become an early indicator for enterprise technology usage in the future. In a seemingly perfect storm, Ubuntu is benefiting from strong developer usage, and the fact that developers are increasingly selecting Amazon's EC2 cloud platform bodes well for continued Ubuntu success on EC2," Rodrigues writes, noting that Ubuntu has surpassed Red Hat usage on deployment servers as well. "As that occurs, IT decision makers will need to consider or reconsider Ubuntu for usage within the enterprise. Rest assured that Red Hat won't sit idly by during these discussions."

Cool. Useless statistics. There is no way to reliably measure OS adoption using web statistics.

Besides that, an adoption of Linux around 30% (in the mobile area) can hardly be considered a failure. Of course this is not in all countries, but nonetheless predominantly in Europe. Of course there are countries with lower adoption rates, but also countries with higher adoption rates. Which is what I wrote.

So thank you for proving me right.

EDIT: You must feel really powerful when you mod down people, right? Nothing like bashing other persons with lies, damned lies and statistics, eh?
