>Reference: Year of the Linux Desktop
Date From: http://marketshare.hitslink.com/report.aspx?qprid=10
I previously blogged about how Linux was going to overtake Windows 98’s market-share on the above website, come the new year. They recently updated retroactively their results taking out some sites that were apparently skewing the distribution. This brought Linux down from .81 in October to .50. While Windows 98 still remains at .82 for that month. Linux is currently losing to even WindowsNT according to this website :(.
The stats from November are:
OS (Diff from last month, from month before)
Windows 98 .76 (-.06, -.08)
Window NT .63 (+.02?, 0)
Linux .57 (+.07. +.01)
Now, without thinking and just looking at the (recent) data, this would be an ok estimate for December:
Windows 98 .69
Window NT .64
And then January:
Windows 98 .62
Window NT .65
However, I feel safe in assuming NT won’t increase and that Linux will increase faster. So even though Linux has .31% less market-share than when I made the prediction. I am holding to it.
