Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "HP, the worlds biggest PC vendor as of 2012, has today launched a brand new all-in-one PC running Ubuntu. But the real 'wow' factor comes from its pricing. At just GBP 349 HP have pitched the PC well within the reach of your average consumer. A similar, though not identical, model is also available with Windows 8 priced at GBP 499."

You didn't even glance at the article I linked, did you? I'll quote the relevant bit:

Note: Data includes desk-based PCs and mobile PCs, including mini-notebooks but not media tablets such as the iPad. Data is based on the shipments selling into channels.

In other words, the Gartner report is based purely on desktops and laptops. Not servers, not thin clients, not tablets as your horribly skewed stats did.

To put it in a way you might be able to grasp: You can't throw out statistics with tablets and phones to try to "balance out" what you assume to be statistics that include servers and thin clients but actually don't. Try doing some actual research before making wild assumptions and grabbing wilder statistics to try to make a point that doesn't even need to be made.

It took me all of thirty seconds to find that Gartner report, probably less time by far than you took to find your flawed and pointless stats.
