Question PERCENTAGE OF LINUX(and other non wintelOS) used WORLD-WIDE??


Hey people ,people who like computers and software.. I gave it a thought lately , I wonder how many people World-Wide and Country to country use LINUX and other OS Vs the Percentage of those who use WINDOWS based OS ??????

Lets face it ,most of us use windows or at least started out wwith it, it took time to make the switch over to NIX OS useage.. I really wonder what the percentage is , and what countries are more "balanced" with their use of ALL different OS,s just a thought>>>?????????????????????

95% is Windows, right. The number of Linux machines is unknown. Mostly because of scripts used to get the info that say that 50% of my connections (from Linux machines) are from "unknown".
