Global Christmas Effect

While GNU/Linux plodded along in web-stats, Android/Linux showed a steady ramp to Christmas followed by a levelling off. I think Christmas came early for many. Now, does everyone on the planet have an Android device or will Android resume its climb shortly? I believe Android will continue to climb for years to come and that people are just “shopped out”.

    81% for Android Linux in smartphone is near the obvious maximum. That doesn’t mean that 81% is upper limit for Linux. We might see in future mostly battles against different Linux systems on global mobile markets.

    Linux is very strong because developers like it. It’s much more flexible, fast and generally better platform for apps than those others.

    What about FreeBSD? It has gained some growth with PlayStation 4.
