I have been noticing a huge shift in usage of GNU/Linux in Canada according to StatCounter. I notice the same thing is happening in USA:

GNU/Linux had a huge double spike, doubling ~April 15 and again on May 18. What’s with that? It’s bigger than possible with most organizations. Could it possibly be Dell’s selling Ubuntu GNU/Linux? How could that shift display itself overnight like that?

Is this the beginning of the collapse of the house of cards?


It even shows up globally although not as pronounced:

The mystery continues.

    There are relatively big chances it you take a loot at figures of Canada (latest just 1,7%). Finland – now 2,79%. Germany 3,04%. Then there is decline for Venezuela: 8,91% —> 6,98%

    Personally i don’t trust much on these “studies”. World is waiting for much more reliable studies showing e.g how many Linux-clients there are globally.
