Android tablets browsing share is still relatively low in Europe, but very strong in Asia. Despite the iPad's head start in the market, Android's tablet browsing share has nearly matched the iPad in Asia. More importantly, the overall trend is sharply in favor of Android tablets, which supports the strong shipment performance over the past few quarters.

Good analysis. Sameer Singh compares the growth trend of Android tablets to that of Android smartphones in the past, and it shows that Android tablet usage is actually growing faster than Android smartphone usage did in the past.

At this point, nothing seems to be able to stop Android's total and utter dominance. Not Apple, not Microsoft. Scary.

Windows 95, 98 and ME could be quite unstable although I do think a lot of that was drivers.

For everything in the Windows NT line I definitely blame the drivers for any instability. My home-built Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7 machines have always been very stable, probably because I never put any weird or cheap hardware in them.

Linux has had its problems getting driver information but when drivers are written the Linux drivers do a really good job.

With Windows hardware I sometimes think the drivers were written by contractors with no interest in a good job beyond getting paid. I once had a laptop whose Windows WiFI driver would crash if more than 1 GB of RAM was installed. It ran fine with the Linux driver though.
