Some more data from NetApplications for March:
OS share (%)
|OS||CA||CA â€“ Google||USA||USA-CA|
Google=Mountain View + Sunnyvale
This shows again the extreme bias NetApplications has to business-use of OS. Google, a mere 10K people in a small region of California, changes the stats markedly throughout USA, from 0.65% excluding California to 1.72% including California. It is no wonder that NetApplications shows too high values for that other OS when business-usage is weighted so heavily. It’s just not believable that 2/3 of the usage of GNU/Linux on client PCs in USA is 10K employees of Google. There are school divisions in USA with 5000 PCs using GNU/Linux. Indiana has tens of thousands of PCs running GNU/Linux in schools. They are not being counted.
Indiana, According to Net Applications
If one drills down a bit and combines with Google Trends, one can find some hotspots in Indiana, but nothing like California:
