Linux Grabs More Than 2% of Desktop Market Share

LichtSpektren writes: W3Counter’s stats for June 2016 are in, and Linux desktop accounts for 2.48% of all web visits from tracked websites… (Android is counted separately from “Linux desktop.”) Meanwhile, NetMarketShare shows Linux with a 2.02% share of the desktop market. And StatCounter shows a more detailed breakdown of the top 7 operating systems, with Windows 7 at 42.02%, Windows 10 at 21.88%, OSX at 9.94%, Windows 8.1 at 8.66%, Windows XP at 6.5%, and another 4.06% for “Unknown” (which is roughly tied with “Other”) — beating Windows 8.0 at 3.52%. In May they also reported another thought-provoking statistic: that Firefox’s browser usage had surpassed that of IE and Edge combined for the first time.
