Onwards And Upwards, GNU/Linux Desktops In Canada

While I take webstats with a grain of salt, they do indicate something is happening in Canada:
I still don’t know what it is but the rate of change and magnitude is exciting.

I’m thinking this could be a big rollout of Chromebooks with a change of user-agent or a real migration to GNU/Linux but I have no idea what organization would be large enough to show this shift. Government? Education? Whoever they are, I like them for doing rollouts on weekends… 😉

    “There were stories last year describing how Microsoft’s Surface RT tablets were piling up in warehouses for lack of buyers.

    Now, according to a story in the Guardian, Microsoft has revealed in a filing to a U.S. regulator they are taking a loss on every Surface tablet they do sell.

    According to revenue figures submitted by Microsoft to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission covering a nine month period up to March 2014, the company’s total revenues from the Surface were US$1.8 billion but the cost of that revenue was $2.1 billion, meaning it had to spend $116 to get $100 of revenue.”

    Down, down they go!
