Linux "If you consider NetApplications' data set, then Linux owns only about 1 percent of the desktop OS market and Windows has almost 92 percent. But if you consider all computing platforms, including mobile, than Windows has only 20 percent and Linux has 42 percent - and that would be in the form of Google's Android alone." No more or less legitimate than claiming Windows owns 92% of the market. It's all a matter of perspective.

RE[2]: Linux is a kernel

Member since:

The fact that the OSes running are different on different machines does not mean that we cannot make this statement.

And that is creating bogus useless statistics. Yes, they're all using the same kernel but they're all different Operating Systems.
