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.

GNU is just one possible component of the stack. There are many many more. That RMS thinks his baby is the most important component, even more then the Kernel adding GNU in front of Linux when saying GNU/Linux is his view. Reality looks different. Wayne?
