Spain has rolled out Ubuntu GNU/Linux to 220K students. That should show up in the stats somewhere. Perhaps here:
Nope. That’s just Clicky ignoring most GNU/Linux installations while noticing a new release of Ubuntu. The “Linux” category dropped the same way in many other countries without a huge roll-out of Ubuntu, just a new release.
Ubuntu does get a good share in many countries but Cuba is the most interesting:
Interestingly, Clicky shows Mac at less than Apple’s published shares… while NetApplications shows them greater… What’s with that?
Notice the sharp dips in Brazil’s stats from Clicky. Clearly they think most people have that other OS at home but work/school is GNU/Linux. We know there are a lot of people working/schooling, yet GNU/Linux share still shows tiny. What’s with that?
Overall, I think the stats again show that published web stats greatly underreport GNU/Linux. Even in Brazil where all students use GNU/Linux at school and most government employees use GNU/Linux and GNU/Linux is a best-seller at Walmart, Clicky still reports ~1%. The fluctuation between home and work/school are huge, like half the share. That should mean half the schools and government offices use GNU/Linux. Yet, they report a tiny share. What’s hiding behind the curtain? Inquiring minds want to know.
Here’s what I see of visits this month:
1. Windows 42,488 24.40% 2. Linux 36,091 20.73% 3. Macintosh 6,386 3.67% 4. Android 2,386 1.37% 5. iOS 939 0.54% 6. iPad 936 0.54% 7. (not set) 856 0.49% 8. iPhone 740 0.43% 9. iPod 134 0.08% 10. BlackBerry 89 0.05%
To the argument that the site’s biased to GNU/Linux I would reply, “If so, why are so many users of that other OS visiting? They must be interested in GNU/Linux.” It’s all good. Clearly there are far more unique visitors than commentators on any side. I am reaching folks who want to know about how to do things in IT.
