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.

Its only function, is to mask Linux's deficiencies in other core markets.

When you say 'other core markets' you must mean solely the pc desktop, I can't think of any other.

And this is a Microsoft monopoly in which not even Apple with all it's marketing and popularity could make a real dent, which incidentally is likely what made them (very successfully) shift their focus onto tablets.
