While StatCounter’s chart for December doesn’t even show */Linux, they do deliver the goods in a CSV file… The big takeaway for me is that while over three weeks one can see a declining trend in that other OS (“7″,”8.x”, XP, etc.) */Linux (Android, Chrome OS and GNU) shows a rising trend of similar magnitude. In particular, on weekends when usage of that other OS is down, it’s up for */Linux. Given a choice, real people are preferring FLOSS.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
