It's obviously targeted at enterprise - i.e. for those with the need to run multiple headless Linux servers virtualised.

In enterprise, I don't think anyone apart from IBM/Red Hat or SUSE is interested in running X servers or X11 applications.

Netflix and WhatsApp, arguably typical kids' stuff, run on FreeBSD.

You are free to do so. Even most FreeBSD users agree that Linux accounts for well over 3/4 of web servers. I accept of course that such stats are often based on faulty data, for example see "unknown" in this graph:

I worked for some companies that had us developing software on MS-Windows, but they ran Linux on their web servers. Even then, plenty of developers at those companies used something like Cygwin on MS-Windows, to give them Linux-like capabilities on MS-Windows.

There are various set top boxes, boxes for cable or satellite TV services, that run Linux.

In the US, the state of Illinois, some of the Illinois Lottery machines in stores run Linux. Some of the "pin pads" used in stores have associated software running on Linux.

I bought a stand alone network backup server that was primarily intended to backup files from a collection of MS-Windows based machines, yet the backup server was running Linux.

There are ostensibly over 2 Billion Android devices; Android is built on Linux.

So it seems as though there's a few machines out there running Linux.
