Ubuntu GNU/Linux has been global on the web but Canonical/Mark Shuttleworth has a larger project in mind. So far they have created business relationships with most of the large OEMs and provided cloud services and content-distribution portals.
Shuttleworth says projections are for OEMs to ship 20million PCs with Ubuntu GNU/Linux in the coming year. That’s about the same as Apple, a bit over 5% of PCs shipped annually.
Combined with what other distros ship, thin clients and conversions it should be a very good year for GNU/Linux desktops.
