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.

Member since:

but the PulseAudio nonsense was clear evidence the geeks behind Linux care more about bragging rights ("me has network transparency") than making usable stuff.

It's not network transparency that hurts PA, it's the shitty design and implementation. Network transparency done right degrades to a shmem implementation when local and works just as well as if it were designed that way from the start.
