    It doesn't matter.
    Call it 1 percent if it makes you feel better.

    The BBC got 0.8 percent which is close enough.

    The point is, desktop Linux is a piker.

    Virtually nobody is using it and the numbers pretty much agree with that.

    After 15+ years of being FREE and it still can't break the 1 percent mark?

    That my friend is PATHETIC.

    Your use of the term pike shows your bias.

    Virtually. But it is being used, and in very important places.

    And that shows your distinct brand of dishonesty. At least it's user base
    is still increasing after 15 years, as opposed to all the other stems
    that have been killed off along the way.
