OMG! Desktop GNU/Linux in Bahrain Goes Critical


See Top 7 Desktop OSs in Bahrain from 1 July 2008 to 17 Apr 2015.

What on Earth are the Bahrainis doing with Desktop GNU/Linux?

According to the ITU, they are among the top countries in ICT development. Good for them. Despite being fabulously wealthy, they appear to be doing IT the right way with lots of FLOSS.

MacOS is also gaining but it’s That Other OS that’s the big loser, especially on weekends. This suggests there is a source of retail GNU/Linux notebooks in Bahrain. Souq.com sells them.

The peak of GNU/Linux usage so far was March 27, a Friday in a muslim country which has a day off work for many, at 5.38%. The following Wednesday, the share was 3.28%. It’s too bad GNU/Linux is not getting more of the share of M$’s decline but it’s their choice. It’s good they have a choice.

    Would you say that Bahraini use of the Linux Desktop is more a Sunni thing, or more a Shi-ite thing, Robert?

    Between you and Erich von Däniken I’d choose the latter when it comes to theorizing.
