Linux Users, Rejoice!

You almost have a FULL PERCENTAGE POINT OF MARKET SHARE!

OS Market share 2008

Sorry, folks. Just because you almost doubled your market share in one year doesn’t mean you’re going to keep seeing this trend. The iPhone more than quadrupled theirs — know why? Because they have money to market with. Open source software will never compete with the folks that have money, whether or not they’re superior.

If you build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to your door. But there’ll still be a nice superhighway leading to the older, name-brand mousetraps.
