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 used to be a full Linux backer back in the early days, when distributions still came in floppies.

Even doing the typical M$ stuff, open source quotes on email signatures and subscribing to Linux Journal.

Nowadays, I just use whatever operating system gets the work done.
