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.

It is interesting to see how users adapt. All mobile users can dial their phone numbers on iOS, Android or any other mobile platform even if the applications look a bit different on every platform. They are able to browse the web on any browser given to them so the really don't mind what platform is underneath. However when it comes to desktop, they are totally lost when they cannot find those familiar Word and IE icons on their desktop or when they are presented with non-Office suite.

Thats why on mobile, the platform does not matter and Android wins and why on desktop the Windows is the king.
