Linux Across the World

Posted on Posted in general, Software

For you open source geographers out there, I’m sure you’ve always been curious exactly what the adoption rate of Linux might be world wide. Luckily, you can now see your answer. They start with an agreegate of Linux in general, and then break it down by distribution. You can certainly argue with their statistics, as its based upon searches in Google. However, that might not be too terrible a metric to use, as it would be hard to get good numbers any other way. I don’t think it’s any huge suprise that places like India and Russia are heavily interested in Linux. However, there are a few countries that strike me as odd. Apparently Italy really digs Ubuntu. Who knew?
