Linux "If you consider NetApplications' data set, then Linux owns only about 1 percent of the desktop OS market and Windows has almost 92 percent. But if you consider all computing platforms, including mobile, than Windows has only 20 percent and Linux has 42 percent - and that would be in the form of Google's Android alone." No more or less legitimate than claiming Windows owns 92% of the market. It's all a matter of perspective.

The real point is that the is Windows "tax" is absolutely minsicule unless you buy a retail version of Windows. I would probably be only saving $10 if the actual licence cost was subtracted from the purchase price.
