@ rp88.....G'day !.....I must confess I did not do what i usually do. I would normally dig and dig until I had a really good deep tranche of data and then dissect it in such a fashion that it was as accurate as possible ....
However...on this occasion I simply went to the community index and took the prevailing figures for each os on that particular day (14th june 2016)
So are the figures a "bit rough"..?....hell yes !!
Did the establishment of the post spur some thought that otherwise may not have taken place....I hope so !....because that was the purpose/aim of the post.
It is my contention that over the past few months there has been a definite increase in the interest shown in Linux. Interest is one thing...people actually installing and "owning" an install is perhaps quite something else.
If I, in my own way, encourage someone to take the extra step....extend that little bit of extra effort...to actually have a good experience with one of the many distributions of Linux....then my efforts will have not been in vain.
Having a good experience to me means that the bs surrounding all things linux is swept out of the way for sufficient time for the person to actually 'self realise' that what he/she is experimenting with is actually doable/practical/can work in their circumsrtances.
I ramble....I am actually going off topic in my own topic !!

Microsoft gives you Windows, Linux gives you the whole house...
