    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!
            WEEEEEEEE!

              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'
