Question server software

Hey girls/guys:
Besides UNIX as the backbone for www., how popular is Linux still? Got a bit behind.

I'll be glad to bring you up to speed.

Windows is long gone after what the disaster of Windows 19, codenamed "Rude Horse".
Macintosh is more popular than it used to be, but only after reverting back to Lion, going back some 18 years to 2010.
Android is now a fully multi-user server environment, which runs on 98 cores with 4 terabytes of ram on a toeheld tablet, with 815Gig speed wireless connections.

There are robots in the White House, coldly, yet efficiently sponsoring/pushing new IT security laws into Congress in parallel, 24/7 at fantasticly inhuman rates. Congress is nothing but two sets of auto-voting predictor machines, wherein the people vote on Facetious-Book on what their ideal proto-Congress person/proto-Senate person would statistically vote most often.
Of course, Facetious-Book auto votes for you on who your favorite proto-politician is ... based on your statistically computed and predicted profile... so... there's that...

Police forces resemble Robo-Cop, with absolutely no human oversight. You'd like it though, they're hateful all the time, no unfair treatment available to anyone, except proto-politician voting machines.

Your car doesn't use gas, and has no steering wheel, in fact, it's little more than a big hoverboard.
*I* have a hoverboard now, and *you need* one as well - however, it's tied to Gaggle and it auto-boards everywhere for you, which you can watch over a tight and fast Annerwebb connection. The only way to control it is that you give what it's doing a thumbs up, or a thumbs down, depending on how much you're enjoying yourself.

Linux dominates the desktop, though you'd not like it. It runs a desktop that's exactly like Windows 95, and people are haters out there, including me. I myself, just loaded up Gnome 3 for a replacement (I'm a rebel), and a number of folks like an old copy of XFCE from a Linux Mint build from 2012.

The true renegades out in the Linux world, which makes up a whopping 68 of all "desktops", runs Puppy, get this, from the command line. No actual/real desktop, and no graphics. You don't need it - you can just "see" - by feel - what the graphics are in your mind, via a multi-gigawatt neural impulse generator - which manipulates *not* the orbital nerve receptors in your brain - but your emotions. That's right - the newest computers have "emotional output" not "graphical output" - and therefore - command line is all you need. The more gigawatts of emotional output your machine provides, the better (obviously).

Generally, when you go to your "AwesomeBuy" store - (not in person) - you'll observe people sharing/showing off Scheme Lisp command libraries which have the greatest fantasy-emotional outputs... for huge dollars outlays that you can finance well into your frozen Cryogenics days (all run at your non-locally outsourced virtual Amazonazing cryo-server-farm). So, how will you "feel" being able to run the newest "Howl of Duty" and at the highest emotional "revoltanoutions" (how you measure emotionally violent games) has now become the question of the day amongst gamer geeks.

The rest of mankind lives on the lyrics of the song, "In the year 2525" from the 60s.

So, I sincerely hope this helps, see you on the command line at/on the "AwesomeBuy" Annerweb Emotibyte 1.5 EARL (ne' URL) purchase/credit forum!!!

Lnthink, given that you did not answer OP's question, that is still one of the funniest things I've read in weeks. Forget about that hoverboard--where can I get that jetpack that I was promised when I was young?

OP, calculations of Linux market share vary widely depending on who is doing the measuring and what exactly is being measured. A web search for "Linux market share" will turn up lots of links, most of which are rank (in several senses of the word) speculation.

Here's one that seems a little more solid than most:

Jetpacks can be found at BlastMasters, a former Bass Fishing enthusiast store from days long gone (there really aren't any fish left out there). BlastMasters has changed their whole business model to supply everyday JetPackers*** with all of their Jet Pack needs. Fuel, thermal suits, guidance systems, and oddly enough - fishing lures.

***a grass roots enthusiast group that has spread world-wide, which was started by former two particular NFL football enthusiast groups from the New York, and Green Bay areas that become fond of their jet packs, eventually abandoning professional football fandom, which began the total demise of the Multinational-NFL(MNFL), as well as pro wrestling (WWWFS - World Wide Wrestling For Show) and something called "dance-yoga" (DYGITMAN Dance Yoga Gone In To Muscles, Aerobics, Nutrition - a retro 60s movement based totally on the ability to turn the phrase "Dig It Man" from the 1960s into common everyday gym membership revenues).

As for not answering OP's question - I thought I did!
