In the News So, what to do with this. If we don't run it, we're pro-Linux. If we do run it, we're pro-Microsoft. And I'm sure that whatever we do, we're anti-Apple somehow. In any case, here we go: the latest market share figures from IDC about servers show that Windows is by far the most popular server operating system in terms of unit sales, increasing its market share even further. Linux, on the other hand, saw its market share in the server market sink a little.

it did not properly detect Debian's Iceweasel so you had to switch it to "MSIE 7.0" to work, even though Iceweasel was able to render the website properly.


So .. the number of folks using Iceweasel on Debian that were *not* counted as such on eBay over the past 10 years ...

is probably 1/2 of 1%, compared of IE users. In other words, irrelevant.

You desktop linux nutjobs never learn.

What kind of math is that supposed to be? "1/2 of 1%"?!? Is it too difficult for you to actually multiply two numbers?

And please explain me what "0.5% compared of IE users" (sic) is supposed to mean? 0.5% of IEs market share of 60%? That would be 3% total market share.

You obviously don't know that in Europe Firefox has closed the gap to IE's lead long time ago. And in Germany is has even surpassed IE.

I think the number you are looking for is 0.3%
