The Whole World Moves On To GNU/Linux

Yesterday, Sunday, 2015-Mar-29 was a great day in the neighbourhood of planet Earth. 141 countries were over 1% usage of desktop GNU/Linux according to StatCounter and Guinea-Bissau had another spike. Of those 141 countries, the average share was 2.3% GNU/Linux. Of all countries, StatCounter shows 1.85%, so Canada is now a bit above average, at 1.89%.

Five years ago on the last Sunday in March, GNU/Linux showed 0.69% globally. I see a trend and expect explosive growth for GNU/Linux this year.
