On behalf of desktop Linux users everywhere, and our first cousins, the Mac fans, thanks. You've given us the best shot we'll ever have of taking the desktop."

GNU/Linux desktop is #1 worldwide in usage and #2 in sales as been for years. More user's , more offer , more company , more language , more country and it's cheaper.

Even Ballmer and Microsoft acknowledge GNU/Linux as the leader and there biggest competitor.
