OS Stats Revisited

“Android 41.04% Windows 36.3% iOS 12.43% OS X 5.89% Unknown 2.28% Linux 0.74%”
See Operating System Market Share Worldwide
I’ve been concentrating on other things but I thought to revisit OS market shares today. Checking Statcounter, we find 44% of their hits on web-pages are attributable to */Linux operating systems. Don’t weep for M$ though, they’ve still a lock on business users and are now selling $billions in “services” customers could get for $free with FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software). As far as I know, I’m not giving M$ a cent these days and I have all the computer IT going that I could ever want. What I save on licences and electricity and malware I can spend on hardware and other toys, like my tree-seeds. Ah, the good life doesn’t depend on M$ if it ever did. These days we are gaining freedom from Intel as well, thanks to ARM and partners.
