GNU/Linux By Continent In 2015 So Far

According to StatCounter, GNU/Linux desktops have been going well in 2015. Here’s the data for the first quarter by week and region.

Europe and North America were the stars. Oceania, Africa and Asia are still lagging but also moving up. It’s interesting that Europe seemed more enthusiastic for GNU/Linux than USA, the home of GNU/Linux, but USA is rapidly catching up. It’s all good.

    Why interesting? Europeans are more used to collaborative work as well as working with people of other languages and cultures. Id be stunned if it was the other way around. Part of it is due to geography where NA is an isolated island where one neighbour calls the shots and the banana republic to its north gets a treat when its a good boy. The anglo media in north america knows very, very little about FLOSS in europe apart from what they get from England and maybe Germany.
    What happens in France, Spain even Italy gets totally overlooked as if it didnt exist.

    From what Ive seen the past 5yrs, south america is big on FLOSS and is gettin bigger from my small sample size over the past few years travelling there.

    I love the Oceania mention… like it matters.
