Really?

http://marketshare.hitslink.com/report.aspx?qprid=2
Linux: 0.75%
Mac: 5.97% (adding the "Mac OS" and "MacIntel" categories together)


Marketshare and userbase are two totally different things. Not many Linux users buy their distro from the packager.

Read the link again. The stats are for userbase (based on web stats), not "marketshare".

Where does it say that? How are the statistics collected? I hate to break it to you but linking to some random graph on the web doesn't prove your point.
