I'm sorry. I think this whole "marketshare" thing is a farce. There is really no telling how many people are on Linux, because adopters of Linux don't buy it.

But they will go online.

They will download apps from their distro's repository.

Buy a "Humble Bundle" and you be counted as a Linux gamer.

Why do you think the Mozilla Foundation is a Net Applications client?
