      It really is! I do hope it changes soon. The more people vote, the better, and that includes everyone here on Phoronix as well. By the way, I will be stealing that image for future use in case the need arises!

          Simple:

          http://stats.wikimedia.org/wikimedia...ingSystems.htm

          Breakdown per platform for Mac and Linux:

          Linux Android 8,298 M 4.80%
          Linux Arch 236 k 0.00%
          Linux CentOS 5.3 M 0.00%
          Linux Debian 13.6 M 0.01%
          Linux Epiphany 2.7 M 0.00%
          Linux Fedora 26.3 M 0.02%
          Linux Gentoo 1.3 M 0.00%
          Linux Kubuntu 4.1 M 0.00%
          Linux Mandriva 11.1 M 0.01%
          Linux Mint 11 M 0.01%
          Linux Mips 1.2 M 0.00%
          Linux Motor 209 k 0.00%
          Linux openSUSE 30 k 0.00%
          Linux Oracle 311 k 0.00%
          Linux Other 1,552 M 0.90%
          Linux PCLinuxOS 278 k 0.00%
          Linux Red Hat 4.3 M 0.00%
          Linux Slackware 91 k 0.00%
          Linux SUSE 22.7 M 0.01%
          Linux Ubuntu 1,189 M 0.69%
          Linux Xubuntu 30 k 0.00%
          Mac Intel 14,534 M 8.40%
          Mac PowerPC 236 M 0.14%
          On the desktop, Mac is 8% of the market. Linux is about 2%, across 15 or so different flavors, each with different desktop environments, default feature set, and other bells and whistles. Mac is a more controlled package, making it far easier to code to, while also managing a much higher market share.

          All the different flavors of Linux, not to mention all the different possible S/W and H/W configs, make it a very unattractive target for developers.

              Except that it's not a distribution, but all of the unknown ones put into the same category...

              Speaking of which, how do they know what distribution is being used to begin with? I thought it wasn't added to the agent string...

                Yes, that was my point. Refutes claims like "over half of linux users use Ubuntu".

                It is added to the user agent, as extra branding, by some distros only.

                  Ah, I thought you were trying to refute the claim that most GNU/Linux users use Ubuntu.

                    Where did they get their Arch stats? Complete horse sh*t.

                    As a webpage would see me. (nothing to indicate Arch)

                    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0

                    as my computer is

                    uname -a
                    Linux (user name removed) 3.6.6-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Nov 5 11:57:22 CET 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

                    Arch == Unknown Linux that's why the number is big.

                      More like
                      Arch == One of the Unknown Linux

                      At least openSUSE does the same (no hint in user agent):
                      Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0

                      And I'm sure many others do the same.
