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 didn't come up with the numbers, I merely commented on them. If you're trying to make a point, then make it.

Chromebooks do not yet have an appreciable impact on these numbers, and I'm not yet convinced they will. Its nice that you like Chromebooks, but it would be nicer if you presented a situation in where they could conceivably come to dominate, then we could argue on those merits.
