Linux Yes boys and girls, it's Net Applications time. Sure, their figures are flawed, and sure, they're misused all over the non-scientifically educated media, but that doesn't mean they do not indicate trends. One of those trends was a slowly rising popularity of Linux, which hit 0.93% market share in August 2008, only to sink back again during the following months. Well, it's April May 2009 now, and Linux has finally crossed the 1% market share line!

Man, Linux is unstoppable, we are everywhere and rule almost all markets. Just remember the desktop is not MS intended market, if they are left with desktop market alone they would go broke.

Yeah, says Boycott Novell. Reader discretion is advised.

That sounds excessively optimistic by a long shot. You are spot on about Linux being unstoppable, but we hardly dominate any market where platform is of big importance. Yet. Expect Linux to do absolute killing on mobile phone market in < 3 years.

Kensai, you're a deulusional f--kwit. You disdain stats from "pro-microsoft" sources, but trumpet the truth of stats from "anti-microsoft" sources.

What a tard. Keep your candy-ass desktop OS, the grownups have work to do.
