Today I decided to check on NetMarketshare's stats from last month and noticed something that caught my eye:
The curious thing is that, 3 lines above, you read Linux at its never changing one point something market share, according to the site, that is.
Although, compared to July, when Linux had 1.29%, August's 1.38% is quite a leap.
But why is Ubuntu listed separately? The page is listing desktop operating systems, so I see no need to separate Ubuntu from all the other Linux desktop distros.
If Ubuntu's share were added to Linux, then the penguin's market share would be 2.01%.
Or am I missing something? Is Ubuntu using a kernel different from the Linux kernel, for example, and became a totally separare OS?
I guess I have to check that out. 🤔
