    At least you're right about something.

    • Mmm? I'm afraid you'll have to make a greater effort if you want me, or anybody else, to parse your (terribly interesting I'm sure) thoughts in any meaningful way.

        You should sit down and read. Even a person with the attention span of fly and the reading capabilities of a third grader should be able to read and understand it. So you have a fair chance.
        Ahh, the last resort, hurl insults.

        Read the article again genius, she starts off with servers, which if your mind wasn't so keen on supporting your own opinion by belittling others, you'd draw the connection between apache, mysql and php and the Linux "server."

          She was beginning with the overal Linux penetration before heading over to the desktop part, so read the entire article, genius.

          She goes on to say that the with the Dell netbook sale in 2009, the Linux percentage was one third. Given that the netbook sale was 18% of all the Dell sales, Caitlyn calculated that the entire Linux sales percentage of all Dell sales in 2009 (last year) was 6%.

          So, in total for 2009, for each 17 computers that Dell sold with Windows, they sold one with Linux.

            It takes one sentence to produce a lie, but it takes a whole paragraph to debunk it. Fortunately, I have already done it in a previous post, so you only have to use your mouse to get there.

            But briefly, what you say she did is not what she said she did. And what she said she did is not what she actually did. I attribute your interpretation to a question of missunderstanding. I attribute hers to a combination of dishonesty, ignorance and lack of professional standards.

              Actually that is not true. The 32% figure she quotes was an estimate from ABI Research of what they thought would be the percentage of Linux netbook sales from 2009. It was not an actual sales figure.

                That may be an accurate statement. However, the roughly 1/3 of all netbooks figure for Dell didn't just come from that- it also came from the Senior Product Manager at Dell FOR that product line. It also jives with my insider info at that OEM.

                It's not some WAG.

                      that Steam is trying to position itself as a generic package manager for Windows, thus making Windows users more comfortable with Linux, growing its install base, and justifying releasing Steam/Source for it?

                            Would rather see a port of WON2 for linux.
                            Digital distribution sucks too.
                            Steam was a pain in the arse to install mods that it doesnt list on its stupid website thingy as well as it takes ages to load, login etc, update, advertise crap at you, sit around wasting resources/killing FPS while your trying to play HL2 Episode 2 in highest settings etc etc.

                              Good job owning STEAM isn't mandated to get on the net.
                              You have your own opinion about it like others.
                              Some would love to see corporations take a financial interest in linux.

                              But as the saying goes. Opinions are like arseholes, everyone has them and they all stink
