Linux represents more than 60% on the professionnal market servers.
Now, all the super calculators are on Linux.
Microsoft has lost the professionnal market and the mobile market,
for Android at 95%. It's why, it hates Linux and the openssource,
tries, to come back on the cloud, to have now friendly relations
with the opensource environment, and declares that it is 
"the champion of the Opensource" (sic),
(opensummit exhibition in Paris since more than 5 years,
it says and writes that).

In the general public market (the people), Linux has a weak part,
about 3% (Apple 10%, Windows 85%) and I'm asking why ?

Maybe Linux is a little bit too complex, the tying practice, computers 
sold with Windows pre-installed, that is a shame,
and in most of schools, the computers are on Windows (a shame again).
Microsoft has given a lot of money to the french national education ministry,
to keep Windows in the french schools (shame number 3),
(a child always keeps all his life in memory what he learned young,
and microsoft knows that very well.
A practice of microsoft also in european countries and in many ministries...
They invest money to keep the market (shame number 4).

Android is a Linux system and nobody has difficulties on it,
said Linus Torvalds.

My daughter has learned computing on Linux,
now she is 18 years old and continues on Linux Debian with Trinity Desktop.

Anyway, I prefer Linux and will never come back to windows !
