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… 😉

    People have decided they do not want Surface.


    “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!
