2013: A Linux Christmas


Quote:
Sales information for the 2013 holidays shows another successful season for Amazon. That's no surprise. What may surprise some is how often Linux-powered electronics appeared at the top of Amazon buyers' list.

Of course, Amazon's top tablet sellers were its own house-brand, the Android Linux-powered Kindle Fire HD; the Kindle Fire HDX 7"; and the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9". Amazon states that “Cyber Monday holiday shopping weekend was the best ever for Kindle Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers.”

A closer look at Amazon tablet sales shows Android powered all of the top ten selling tablets. Other than Amazon's own tablets, the top ten sellers were low-end, sub-$100 7” tablets from Chromo and Tablet Express/Dragon Touch, along with Samsung's Galaxy Tab 3.

Apple? Microsoft? They came in at 11 and 12, respectively, with Apple's low-end 16GB iPad mini and Microsoft's 32GB Surface RT.
