> "The program has demonstrated that Linux cannot capture more than one-hundreth of the market with a free upgrade."

Linux (the underlying OS of Android) has 80% of the sales of the most personal of personal computers - ones that you take with you in your pocket, and this represents 4 to 5 times the number of desktop Windows machines sales in the last year.

Linux also has the largest share by number of servers and has the vast majority of both extreme ends of the market in supercomputers (98%) and small SBCs.

Desktops - Windows can keep that and die with it.
