Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
""Building web apps is not getting easier. The fragmentation of
operating systems and browsers is getting worse, not better."
- Fred Wilson, "Fragmentation"
"With a few caveats, the above statement is obviously true.
"We don't see quite the same level of fragmentation that Wilson
does; his property has five operating system and browser
combinations with better than a 10% share, while we have only
three. No platform has better than a 17% share there; we have two
north of that figure. But if we split the metrics, our data shows
the same trajectory. Here's our browser system share for January of
this year, for example."
