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.

I've actually seen the video where Shuttleworth mentions this.

This article says:

"He claimed Linux comes pre-installed on five percent of PCs globally now."

But I think he said: "will come pre-installed on five percent of the global PC-market".

This suggests to me, it hasn't happend yet.
