NetMarketShare Linux desktop share for August 2017 is over 3% for the first time


Market share statistics of this nature are always a bit controversial and of questionable veracity, but I think it can be interesting to look at overall trends (in context). What do LQ members think of this one?

Probably mostly down to the growth of ChromeOS. Agreed that their general trends are probably safe-ish to go by xD Though I also think that the Wikimedia measurement sounds more safe.

Wikimedia currently puts Ubuntu on 0.22%, 'Linux' (presumably meaning non-Ubuntu/Android/ChromeOS Linux) on 0.35%, ChromeOS on 0.25% and Android on 26%. So that certainly puts desktop Linux on less than 1%, not 3%.
