Re: In Other News, Linux Is Still A Nonentity...
"Are you saying it could have been something™ "
No, I'm saying what I wrote - that's what honest people generally do - not prevaricate or lie even. I don't give a hoot for Gates or Jobs if people want to use their software so be it.
On the other hand I don't get your motive : are you really so worried by this 'small' percentage that you have to try to run it down. What is it to you ?
People aren't being lured into Linux they chose as I said. It's been good for me for nearly twenty years, I don't use anything else and I can do everything I want. Edit/render HD video, develop RAW DSLR images, run GoogleEarth, Skype, use a 3G dongle, masses of scientific software and much more. I have a low-energy file server, 3 desktops, 1 netbook and two laptops including a brand new 4 core i7 and none have ever had Windows installed except an old laptop that was given to me because it was unusable after a Window update.
