Desktop GNU/Linux In USA Boarding The Train

In the old days if you wanted to go somewhere in a hurry, you boarded the train, had a meal and a nap and woke up somewhere else.

That’s happening in the USA. While folks are claiming nothing’s happening, the train is picking up speed and when folks notice they will be in another world where GNU/Linux has several percent share of the desktop.

    I’d suggest that 100%+ growth on a global scale means something.

    Remember Lada Niva in Germany a few years ago? And no, economic sanctions are not the reason for Ladas not to sell good in Germany.

    That’s not apropos as GNU/Linux is succeeding everywhere. The desktop may be the last frontier but sooner or later GNU/Linux will make its mark. I’d suggest that 100%+ growth on a global scale means something.

    December 2014 1.39%
    Three months later, March 2015, 1.82%. Change = +0.43% in one quarter.See StatCounter. Thats over 100% per annum. April seems to be doing even better. March 30 was 1.74%. April 20 was 1.95%. Those dates are both Mondays. That’s +.21% in three weeks, +3.64% in one year, 209% per annum. It is the year of the GNU/Linux desktop. Believe it.

    A fitting German song for your condition, Robert, by former Austrian “Schlager” star Christian Anders, after his musical career writer of books on all things esoteric and conspiracy theories:

    “Es fährt ein Zug nach nirgendwo, mit mir allein als Passagier”
    (A train is going to nowhere, me being the only passenger)
