See Top 7 Desktop OSs in Palau from 1 Sept to 7 Oct 2015It just dawned on me. The extravagant market-share shown for GNU/Linux in Palau is a real “experiment”. With GNU/Linux being part of a botnet that spoofs Palau, we can see the huge boost That Other OS must get with its multiple botnets and high percentage of infected hosts. Indeed, the 80% growth spurt of GNU/Linux in China may actually be due to the botnet which spews gigabits/s in a DDOS. On that other OS, with ~80% share of desktops, the malware may not be as dramatic but millions of bots running That Other OS are unfairly weighting TOOS’ share of page-views. I know StatCounter must filter some of those but clearly, it’s not filtering some GNU/Linux bots.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
