" There's nothing so absurd that if you repeat
it often enough, people will believe it." --William James
"It seems like almost every day someone in the tech press or
someone commenting in a technical forum will claim that Linux
adoption on the desktop (including laptops) is insignificant. The
number that is thrown around is 1%. These claims are even repeated
by some who advocate for Linux adoption. Both the idea that Linux
market share on the desktop is insignificant and the 1% figure are
simply false and have been for many years.
"Linux market share is not tiny. Linux and UNIX have held a
majority share of the server room for over a decade. Linux is very
competitive in embedded devices. It is also making great strides on
the consumer and business desktop, which includes laptops,
notebooks and netbooks."
