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.

7) That FLOSS model of development is technically superior to proprietary one, in terms of gaining market share. (With all else been equal)

"Technically superior" and "gaining market share" might be and often are a bit unrelated things...

Besides, only one open OS (Linux) does really well in the market share...
