Linux As we mentioned in a previous article, Red Hat advocate Greg DeKoenigsberg claimed that due to the much larger amount of code it's contributed, Red Hat is a better open source citizen than Canonical, adding, "Canonical is a marketing organization masquerading as an engineering organization." A Computerworld blog retorts that that's no insult; and that marketing Linux could be just as important to the cause as contributing code. Updated

So Linux might have been at a little below 1% of the desktop market, it's now a little over 1% of the market.


< tribalism >
In Finland, it's at 2.67%.
In USA, it's at 0.72%.

Where did you find those numbers? I'd love to see what they are for us here in Sweden.

Play around with

Sweden has 1.2%. I'm a little bit disappointed with our western neighbour that are otherwise pretty tech-savvy ;-).

EDIT: here are the stats I checked:


Finland 2.67
Germany 1.49
France 1.93
Spain 1.76
Sweden 1.2
Brazil 0.92
USA 0.72
Mexico 0.63

Yea but the creator of Linux left your tribe for the placid burbs of Beaverton, Oregon. He even blogs about shopping at costco. Assimilation complete ;)
