    Interesting if you check the results and eliminate iPhone and iPad on non-mobiles you got results of pc (non-mobiles) like these one:
    DECEMBER 2013:
    Windows…………………. 82,01%
    Mac…………………………. 10,80%
    Linux………………………… 2,27%
    FreeBSD…………………… 0,05%
    Others……………………… 4,87%

    And same figures of non-mobiles in April 2009:
    Windows…………………..92,32%
    Mac……………………………6,17%
    Linux………………………… 1,49%
    FreeBSD+Sun……………0,02%
    Others……………………….1,12%

    Windows lost 10%-unit inside PC-segment. Mac growing but not after Dec 2012. Actually it lost some share there. Linux still grows. And the group “Other” grew from 2,66% to 4,87%.

    I just wonder what the group “Other” really is. Any ideas?
