Bonum Certa Men Certa

GNU/Linux Desktop 'Market Share' According to BoycottNovell.com: Around 35%

"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."

--Benjamin Disraeli



This Web site still delivers over 10,000 pages a day (to human visitors). While operating system usage is very difficult to gauge where Linux is involved (c/f the market share lie), AWStats gives figures based on cases where there is confidence and certainty that the connection is made from GNU/Linux PCs. Here are the numbers:

Nov 2006 41.2 %
Dec 2006 40.5 %
Jan 2007 33.2 %
Feb 2007 32.8 %
Mar 2007 33.7 %
Apr 2007 33 %
May 2007 31.1 %
Jun 2007 36.5 %
Jul 2007 30.9 %
Aug 2007 36.4 %
Sep 2007 36.6 %
Oct 2007 36.8 %
Nov 2007 38.1 %
Dec 2007 31.1%
Jan 2088 30.3 %
Feb 2008 35.6 %


These occasional drops of ~5% below the average occur when very large spikes (usually event-driven) are included, which means that many 'outsiders' come and visit. And still, this is just a lower bound for the reasons cited above.

Now, if only sites such as this were actually included in those surveys that are based on 'junk food' sites where privacy of individual visitors is not honoured (because they don't care)...
