Linux Desktop Market Share is up as Much as 61 Percent, Study Finds

It's possible that the Linux desktop will never be anything more than a fad among geeky enthusiasts. If so, a growing swell of people appear to be much more faddish of late, as numbers from appear to indicate.

All the OS companies seems to be stealing from that big Microsoft pie this year as a result of Vista and their declining brand recognition.

Yeah. The forecast for Microsoft is not good at the moment. I've a feeling the computing landscape will be quite different in the next ten or fifteen years.

I may be wrong, but I don't think the average home user has much need for bulky and excessive OSes any more.

A lot of stuff can, and is, done via the internet these days. What do people use their computers for? Internet? Music? Photography? Some "office" related stuff?

It went from 0.01% to 0.016% desktop market share. (Sarcasm. I don't know the real numbers, but I'm not far off.)
