    1. i thik that you made a mistake, gnome is a desktop as you said, linux is the kernel and it have all the functionality of a gnu linux distribution.

  1. What year is ‘then’ is for the ‘distros used’ graphic? I ask because Red Hat wasn’t founded til 1993 and there was no ‘Red Hat Linux’ until 1994…?

  2. The “then” in case of distributions refers to which year? Most of the distributions in the “then” graph weren’t around in the early 90’s. It looks more like 2002 to me.

  3. I have recently switched over from Windows XP to Ubuntu on my home computer.

    I simply adore this OS

  4. Not so well done – the legends in some charts are not clear, not very informative… (who was using Ubuntu back in 1991?)

  5. It does become kind of a stretch when you have to include the total number of internet users, and the total number of PCs sold. Those really have nothing to do with linux.

    Linux market share is still less than 1 percent, with Java ME and Other tripling linux’s share together.
