    Well almost all my male friend ha e Androids. They all know it's Linux. "Android is FUCKING awsome" <- and no, I didn't translate that :P And then it's followed by "It's Linux, it's pro" (that was a translation).

    Anyway they all run Windows and they all like Amnesia, which some bought over Steam.

    Anyway the only thing they can't do on Linux is games. All their other software is Firefox, VLC, Skype, but also Live Messenger and games. For Exchange they use Gmail and Google calander forwarding to their Androids. Yes companies they work for that have MS Exchange use Gmail and Google Calander forwarding.

    Google Docs is always used too. Now all we need is Steam, some more games and it's bye bye for Windows :P,

    Uhm...I'm not sure about that. My anecdotic experience is that people don't make the connection between their phone and Linux. Some months ago I met an old friend of mine who had been given an android phone at work. He was ecstatic about it, he'd be with us in the pub physically, but his mind was doing some bullshit or another with the new toy, like seeing the stars in some region of the ceiling, checking out the slope of the table and beer glasses and other equally important activities. Anyway, so I proudly shouted at him "SEE? IT'S LINUX DAMMIT! IT RULES1", and he was all like, "uh? oh, right, yeah...my phone does...not so sure about your little black windows (terminals)".

    (Continuing off-topic) I may be (probably am) completely wrong, but android phones may have the same impact on linux as the iPhone had on macs. After the iPhone, the general public started viewing macs as something that was easy to use, as opposed to the previous misconception of being only for professional designers or computer experts. Many today still think that in order to use linux you need to spend lots of time to "learn" it.
    Anyway I'm not sure I want many people using linux. I like not being targeted by hackers, malware and viruses.

    No. Random discussions bring more pageviews. More fun, too.

    It'd be nice if distros could make it easier to track uptake but I see no way for them to do this without users crying fowl about privacy violation.

    And it most likely is! The point is not losing our heads and give ourselves to sketchy estimations as if they were the ultimate answer. Also remember that annual market share for an emergent OS such as Linux is bound to be higher than the proportion of overall installations with respect to the total. And conversely, a (hopefully) declining OS like Windows should have lower market share (as taken from the number of units sold) than their market penetration (I think this is the right term, not sure). With this in mind, it is not that surprising that web statistics are lower than those coming from units sold. Of course, this applies to Windows and Macs better than to Linux, for you can have it for free!
