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.

Because Microsoft is caught in its legacy win32 desktop-workstation world. Caught in there own prision that is rapidly shrinking while they are not present in any other market, in any of the growing future markets. They try to expand to that markets. Bing, Azure, WP. Its failing. Not since yesterday. If that doesn't change fast they are done and gone. Look at there key-partners hit first. Nokia, Intel, Dell, HP. All suffering huge. At least some of them have a strong stand in alternate markets. Microsoft doesn't. Microsofts business was always the mass consumer market and the mass of consumers already left and still leaves there markets.
