Mac and Linux fail to capitalise on Vista mistakes
IT LOOKS like the Mac OS-X and Linux operating system have failed to do any damage to Microsoft Windows, despite the Vista fiasco.
While the jury is still out on Vista, XP use is shutting Mac OS X and Linux out of the desktop market.
According to Softpedia OSX and Linux use have flatlined in uptake in 2007 although it does not appear immediately obvious if you look at the figures.
Figures from Net Applications showed that Linux doubled its market share over the last year and while this should mean that the world is full of dancing penguins, it isn't. Linux only had 0.37 per cent of the market in the first place and now it has 0.81 per cent. Whoop.
