ChromeOS and GNU/Linux Still Growing In USA

According to StatCounter, page-views by ChromeOS grew slowly until last year and ramped up in the fourth quarter of 2013. Now they grow more slowly but still ChromeOS has taken a share similar to all the rest of GNU/Linux in just a few months. It pays to have salesmen and retail shelf-space.

    Seems Google is looking to bring Android apps to its ChromeOS lineup. Sweet!

    So now you have a million and one reasons NOT to use a Win-Doh’s device.

    They are not desperate enough, if you ask me. They haven’t changed their ways wrt the client OS except they have diversified into the cloud to blow smoke.

    M$ pays bloggers to write about IE and BING.

    SocialChorus, an “advocate marketing” firm working on behalf of Microsoft, has been offering to pay bloggers for promoting Internet Explorer. The campaign was exposed after popular blogger and Twitter designer Paul Stamatiou, who also contributes to TechCrunch as a guest writer, was approached by the company to write a paid piece.
    Today Microsoft offered to pay me to blog about Internet Explorer. There’s not enough bitcoin in the world..

    Seems M$ is desperate these days, paying bloggers to write about your stuff is just laughable.

    I find that 80% of browser usage, is something other than IE which should stand around 20%.

    I have no faith in StatCounter.
