“Seeing the light” means obtaining a clear vision of something or getting the big picture. The usage of GNU/Linux is like that. For a long time, web-stats told us GNU/Linux on the desktop was going nowhere really quickly… Today, we can see clearly that’s not the case. Some examples: Norway bounced along at ~1% share of page-views for many years. In 2013 it took off and now seems headed to 4% with growth of 1.35 percentage points per annum.
Whatever the time of illumination, the results are clear. GNU/Linux works for people in any country.
