Yep. I’ve checked StatCounter for global changes related to the changes recently seen in Canada, India, Italy, etc. and it’s happening on a global scale. If this trend continues 2015 will be the year of the GNU/Linux desktop. Check it out. For the last two weeks StatCounter’s GNU/Linux desktop share has been growing 0.02 percentage points per day, 7 percentage points per annum, more growth in one year than we’ve seen in the last 20. Partly that’s due to the anemic showing of that other OS on legacy PCs. This growth has always been there but it’s no longer hidden in the immense growth of the installed base and GNU/Linux now has salesmen in every big OEM and many retailers. It’s all good. 😉

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.
