LXer: GNU/Linux up 60% YoY, Windows down 4%

Published at LXer:

GNU/Linux had a market share of 0.63% in april 2008. One year later, it's (finally) reached 1,02%. If we look at the sheer number it's still laughable, right? Well, It's not laughable for two reasons: - It's an increase of over 60% year over year for GNU/Linux (the brighter side of having such a low number to start with, for sure). - Also, I bet they are not laughing at this at Redmond, Washington. Windows is one of two cash cows of Microsoft and losing a hundredth of the (potential) income these days plus having to almost give away Windows to be present on one of the few markets that's healthy nowadays (netbooks) is costing them hard cash.
