One picture created from data provided by StatCounter says it all:
The rate of growth and magnitude of Android/Linux page-views, according to StatCounter, overtook Lose 8 in May and today, the rate of growth of Android/Linux exceeds that of Lose 8.1. It doesn’t get much better than that unless GNU/Linux were also to take off…

The erosion of M$’s market share for client OS that took its first steps in the late 1990s and began to jog in the 2000s is in a flat-out race now.

This is better for all of us except the would-be monopolists.
