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.

Well they don't count that, they only count real user agents, the ones with real users.

It uses a small Javascript.

More likely they'll be under counting Linux users, a larger share of Linux users are more technical users. They know how to disable javascript (even if temporarily or per domain).
