QUOTE: 'Remind us again...what is the market share for Desktop Linux'

But 'GNU/Linux is 'free' (beer and speech), so not actually part of a market, except to those who push it that way (which they are ' free' to do).

Of course, this is deeply confusing and upsetting to those who have sold their souls to the capitalist mindwarp, where something is only real if it can be 'owned' and 'sold' in the 'market'.

But then they are 'free' to live and think that way, if that is what they choose.

Others have different points of view, and Linux serves many of their needs extremely well, in both terms of 'free'.
