i have no idea where they get their data from… but they have a nice ranking page… not sure if that is a true good representation of the market though.


it is crazy… in 2017 – Linux has ONLY 1.6% market share on the desktop/laptop.

On mobile it is dominating 😀

There are allready more Androids devices and users out there than Windows users 😀

techrepublic.com says it will hit 5% in 2017 on the desktop as well?

That’s why i tried to put together a USB Stick that runs on almost any hardware i have tested it with: http://linux-workshops.de/ideal-linux-stick/
