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."

Entranched world view? No evidence? WTF? Did you read nothing? And evidence of what? Numbers? The stats are already there. Take a look at Ukraine, Denmark etc. in regard to the mobile OS area.

Whether it is or not doesn't really matter in the context of the article.

Your original assertion was that

On the desktop Linux' main area is Europe (at least when considering 1st and 2nd world countries). The situation in USA may be very different.

And then the desktop stats are linked. You ignore this and carry on chatting about mobile then you say this.

They can at best represent a trend, and that trend is damn clear.

And the trends show that for the desktop, Windows 7 usage is increasing, Windows XP & Vista are decreasing, MacOSX is staying the same and Linux is hasn't moved from the bottom.
