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.

Yes, this is all gonna blur, more and more.

Where do netbooks fit in ? What about the Chromebook ?

Do you distingues by it having a touchscreen ?

Or by it having a keyboard, is that the criterium ?

There are laptops on the market with touchscreen now (partly thanks to Microsoft no less).

So where do these devices all fit, what are they ?

Even Gartner is making prediction as if it is one market:
