    Assuming most people browsing are of the younger audience, proxies will be very high on the popularity list for avoiding filters.
    Proxies have nothing to do with it, statistics like this are taken from the browsers user agent string. That would report things like the browser version, its operating system and bits to name a few.

    Only thing proxies would do is distort the locality of visitors.

          It will always be only used be a very specific demographic, and that is the users who have the patience to be heavily involved with their computer. I should never have to edit a single text file, nor have to enter a single command into the terminal for me to get things working (note that I myself can and do cope, I'm speaking about the average user who doesn't give a fuck). Until the companies that wish to profit off of distributing Linux realize this fact, it will remain low. People would rather spend hundreds more on windows so they don't have to be in depth with their computers, and like I just said until these companies realize that, it will continue to be pathetic. The current selection and quality of UI apps is outright pathetic. You guys might find them acceptable but the average end user will not. Things should at least be spaced properly, and bugs should be treated as completely unacceptable. I understand why Fedora or Ubuntu might not fit the bill, they are community driven and don't have the resources. However, someone needs to make an investment in Linux and do it right. Until that happens, it will continue to be the thing for people with patience and them only. Android did it, now someone else needs to do it for the desktop.

            Wait, I'll try a vertical political slant. My right hand is completely detached and insensitive, it's like getting a ride from a stranger and my left wants to play with everyone!

              Linux users were found to have a longer duration on the site than Windows visitors but less than OS X and their page views per visit was also in between Windows and OS X. As said by Pornhub
              You go Don Jon! We'll never spend as much time fapping as you even if we're above average!

                Ha, I suggested to a friend to specificually use Linux for porn sites.

                Linux is a bit 'safer' especially if you don't have any user files in your home directory anyhow, for browsing the porn. So I set up Linux on a friend's laptop specifically for that reason.

                And yeah, he's definitely not a younger individual, I'm not sure where people are pulling that out of their asses, seems to me it's usually the older people that browse the porn.

                  Us spending more time per session than Windows users just means we don't ejaculate as quickly.

                    Ubuntu is community driven?

                      Ha, I was thinking the same thing. We Linux users like to have better control of our 'subsystems'

                          The big animation studios seem to like their linux workstations (not just used for render farms anymore).

                            Oh, I'm sorry, are those big render studios comprised of the vast majority of the population? Even assuming that was true (not saying it's not, but I don't assume things).

                                This was a very click-baity article, moreso than normal Phoronix articles, but...

                                What does this even mean? Difficulty in getting with someone else to fuck? I very highly doubt that is the case. The typical human hits puberty around 10-12 (remember Romeo and Juliet? and if you understand history, or biology, or are familiar with the laws of other countries (in Japan humans can fuck at 14+ years of age), and you should know it yourself having gone through it), and typically five times per week they are around others of their same age when they go to school, so it's not like they have difficulty accessing humans of the same age who also want to fuck. I would guess that porn viewing would actually be more common among those who aren't as social. I'd expect older humans to possibly get into a social rut and not get out, while young humans are forced to get out and go to school. At the same time, many younger humans may still watch it due to it being used as a teaching aid since it's most likely new to them since adult humans typically totally fail when it comes to teaching the young about sex. Then you get into the problem that porn is often somewhat fake and isn't a good teaching aid. This leads me into the next reply...

                                ...which is the only reason, if any, it could possibly be "damaging" in my opinion. Yes, teaching someone incorrectly can be problematic and potentially even "damaging", because if someone sees some movie that depicts some super amazing sex act, and then tries to do it themselves only to find out they can't do it, it could cause them to think there is something wrong with them. I don't think that is a huge deal as they should be communicating with others and learn pretty quickly that movies are usually not real.

                                Otherwise, the claim that wanted safe sex hurts anyone is of course laughable.
