See Top Operating Systems Per Country in Europe, Nov 2015It’s hard to see GNU/Linux systems taking major share even in Europe where it is most popular but in small cheap computers, Android/Linux is king in Europe as in much of the world. Most of the countries in Europe are making 10% or more of their page-views from Android/Linux devices. I’m sure there is some of that share coming from folks who don’t use desktop/notebook PCs. Just the fact that many young folks have their Android/Linux smartphone bolted to their hips precludes them from needing a classical PC to get what they need, connectivity in a connected world. Many of them care nothing for a keyboard because they have flexible thumbs and sharp eyes…
I’m still wanting an ARMed desktop system because my thumbs are not flexible and my eyes aren’t that sharp. I like my aircraft-carrier keyboard and big flat screens. I thought today I would be able to buy such a beast to replace my current fire-breathing Beast but I still see most effort going into smartphones which can’t handle my needs for fast and slow storage. The CPUs are there but the RAM isn’t. I’m ready to go to 8gB RAM and no smartphone has that yet. I need to connect my SATA drives or a gigabit/s network at least. Perhaps I’ll have to wait until next year. There are motherboards that come close but they aren’t there yet.
