some of us can read, I know its hard to fathom, he said that the hybrid have won, back in 1992. So was he correct. Yes he was.



Your reading and comprehension skills seem to be rather lacking. You still have not defined what "winning" means in your very particular context.


last year the pc market sold around 300million machines. How many linux server are in the whole world ? Not that many.


Do you realize that in that figure you are listing, over half of those units come from Commercial applications. Which include enterprise and server duties?

Android devices have been sold upwards of 20 million units per quarter, for example, so there is a significant volume of linux devices out there. Wether or not you can fathom that, however...

Wow 20 million per quarter, unreal. How many PC total last year ?

Wait, I think winning is defined by marketshare, and linux isn't "Winning" there either.

thanks for proving my point regarding you poor lack of reading and comprehension skills.

The point was that Linux was far from having a minuscule market share. Esp. if compared to real microkernel OSes, like QNX.

BTW, Tanenbaum argument was regarding microkernels, not hybrid systems like OSX or modern NT kernels. Because that is what Minix, his creation, is: a microkernel. He may have been technically correct, in fact I agree with him in some of his points/views.

However, given the minuscule market share of minix vs. linux, I would have expected you to know better than to use a fallacy like an argument to popularity. You should provide actual technical reasons as to why Tanenbaun "won" according to you.

But that clearly won't happen, as it is clear you're just a kid with waay too much time during the summer and obviously learning is not one of your priorities. So have fun trolling instead.
