Is Linux Market Growth Stagnated (At Least)?

Filed under
Linux

No matter how hard I’ll try, I will never be able to determine what is the real number of Linux users, and share it with you.

The website provides monthly statistics but I took the liberty in creating a diagram showing the average value for every year to get the whole picture.

UBOS -- a new Linux distro for personal servers and IoT devices

UBOS is a new Linux distro that aims to make it 10x easier to run server-side apps for yourself, or for your family, on hardware you own. Why give your valuable data to Google or some other data overlord, if you can keep it under your own control? All you need is a spare (physical, virtual, or cloud) computer that can run Linux. UBOS automates much of the administration, so you can get on with life. Want to use ownCloud instead of Dropbox? Shaarli instead of delicious? An RSS reader or an Internet-of-Things app? UBOS makes installation and maintenance easy and quick.
