Microsoft Windows Phone 8 operating system managed just 1.87 per cent
Wow, that much? Net Applications has always been known for their skewed stats.
Google's Android has slipped past Apple's iOS to become the top mobile operating system for the first time, in terms of online usage. Figures from Net Marketshare show that devices powered by Android were detected browsing the web more than iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch devices running iOS throughout July 2014. Net …
Yes, that's how Net Applications classifies browser users. Users who "have to be thankful for what they get" get counted as mobile.
Also: users who recently lost a shoe get counted as desktop, users who confuse effect and affect get counted as desktop, users who daydream a little too much get counted as mobile.
This is called "Linux kicking Microsoft's butt." How do you like your 2% market share, M$?
Apple is also demonstrating that their hope of ever being more than a distant second place died along with Steve Jobs. Let's face it: Apple without Jobs is incapable of delighting users.
VIVA LAS PENGUINISTAS!
This is called "Linux kicking Microsoft's butt."
Maybe. But I think it's fairer to say that "this is called "Google kicking Microsoft's butt".
Personally, I'd like to see other OSs challenging this - competition drive innovation after all, and especially given how Google is becoming more and more evil, with the capacity to be far worse than Microsoft ever were.
Exactly what those OSs are... well, I'd like to see something come of Sailfish, and Samsung's Tizen experiment, or even a Google free AOSP.

'This is called "Linux kicking Microsoft's butt." How do you like your 2% market share, M$?'
Probably about twice as much as you like your 1% desktop market share, pathetic penguin! :-)
Plus, you ain't getting $15 bucks or whatever for every PC that ships with Windows. Bummer!
