    Phoronix: Linux Web Usage Almost Doubled, Now At ~2%?

    A new report out from a major Internet advertising firm has shown the number of Linux devices almost doubling in the last quarter of 2013 and putting the Linux usage on the web at just under 2%...

    Attention, coffee can make you forget a big big difference:

    The satellites patrol from the sky, and down on the streets there are so many surveillance cameras that you cannot even count them. As we listen to and watch smart televisions, so they listen to and watch us. The less we lose ourselves, the more is known where we are and how we are. The faster and easier we think, the less frequently we reflect on suggested conclusions. They named them intelligent cities, and we kissed even the lowest level of our privacy goodbye. Centralization of personal memories into corporative clouds is a new fashion trend. Soon after becoming firstly a prerequisite for employment, having a bank account suddenly became a prerequisite for the existence of life in general. The use of cash is banned. Even if you're employed, without a microchip you're without money.

    Thinking about difference between system software and operating systems, here's once again the last part, just in case tomorrow you call me to drink few beers together:

    Depends what you define as hacking: http://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/...on-base-images

    Bleh, I'm too tired to do even sarcasm very well, sorry.

    I once thought I was smart just because I could make my own OS (at least it boots!), something very few people are capable of doing. Then I went to understand that I wasn't that special; the really smart people are mathematicians and physicists (and perhaps philosophers). So no, being able to code whatever you imagine (being good with computers) does not make you special.

    its maybe wrong to mention something like that, again it was not my intention to go to deep down this route, but ok...

    But that makes my sentences not wrong. its just true that linux got used first basicly only on universities more or less and from students... and even today the linux-usage rate on universities is shurly higher, and again the mean iq from students is most likely higher than the iq from non-academic people.

    You maybe dont like it that people talk about that but it is still the truth.

    I did not say that I say people that use windows are dumber, except maybe in the mean people who use linux are smarter I am shure.

    But that was not the question, I just said if people got installed a ubuntu from somebody because they are not able or they belive that they are not able to install it their own, are to a higher change less intelligent than people who install it themself.

    The chance is higher that their IQ is lesser not that every single one is more stupid. And btw it was more like a quick idea collection what COULD be the reason for having so much ubuntu users on wikipedia, because I thought the numbers could not be representing the real distro-market-share. But we found at least bigger reasons that explain them so this reason is less likely a big point if even a point. (like that each mint user gets registrated as ubuntu user in this log).

    So maybe I am wrong at this point, like I said that was not the point, it was just a random guess in the search of reasons.

    UPDATE: it was just a random thought, even if I am right here, I dont think that dumb people really use wikipedia more. I think at least you know a way to get your information, what is again a sign of intelligence. (no 100% proof again)
