GNU/Linux Bests “8.1” In Uruguay and Venezuela


See StatCounter
For the past 30 days in both Uruguay and Venezuela, GNU/Linux share of page-views from the desktop have exceeded that of Lose 8.1 sometimes for three consecutive days. The average for that period was 13.55% Lose 8.1 versus 13.05% GNU/Linux in Uruguay. If you exclude weekends, GNU/Linux was ahead by 0.1%. Not bad for an OS with so few salesmen compared to the OS of a monopolist with $billions invested in excluding competition. The rest of the world hovers around a mere 2% share so the death of the monopoly is happening now. In the next few years more countries will chip away at the monopoly as is happening in North America and Europe and India and the world will be free. All it takes is will to be free. We have it. We will exercise it.
