În decembrie 1992  Linus Torvalds a lansat sub licenta GNU GPL. primul sistem de operare Linux, primul Kernel ocupând doar 65 KB. În ziua de azi, Linux are în jur de 19,5 milioane linii de cod, cu o medie de 7,71 îmbunatatiri acceptate în fiecare ora ~ aproximativ 1.300 de modificari pe saptamâna.

Windows nu este un sistem de operare asa de raspindit, utilizat si important cum se tot spune. Practic in viata de zi cu zi, Linux "invarte roata lumii".

Linux s-a impus acolo unde conteaza si Windows doar viseaza: telefoane mobile, servere, cloud computing, VR, AR, IOT, etc.  La nivel global, avand in vedere impactul asupra vietii cotidiene, Windows are un impact foarte mic, practic nu prea exista: Iata doar cateva exemple. 

- Linux domina Wall Street.
- Google, Facebook sau Amazon se folosesc de Linux. 
- Linux controleaza CERN din Elvetia. 
- Armata Statelor Unite ale Americii este cel mai important utilizator de Red Hat Linux
Cele mai rapide calculatoare din lume se bazeaza pe Linux
Android se bazeaza pe Linux
- Efectele speciale din filme (Avatar si Titanic), au fost create cu ajutorul unor aplicatii Linux

- Banca Industriala si Comerciala a Chinei (proprietate a statului) In 2005 s-au decis sa migreze la Linux 
- Peste 1 miliard de unitati ruleaza Android (400.000 - terminale oficiale, 600.000 - open source, alte os-uri bazate pe android, etc)
- Google (Google Search, Youtube, G+,etc) ruleaza pe servere Linux si acopera 90% din cautarile de pe internet, 3.5 miliarde de cautari pe zi.
- Facebook ruleaza pe servere Linux si are 2 miliarde de utilizatori activi. (Plus Whatzapp, Instagram, etc)
- Linux  ruleaza pe mai mult de 99% din primele 500 cele mai rapide supercalculatoare din lume
- Sistemul de operare Chrome se bazeaza pe Linux
- 40% din hosting se face pe Linux (RedHat,Centos,Ubuntu,etc)
- 90% din telefoanele mobile ruleaza Android (Linux).

................................................

Pâna în prezent, nu exista statistici exacte despre utilizatorii de desktop Linux. In general se vehiculeaza un procent de 2.7-3.6%. Numerele reale pot mult mai mari sau mult mai mici.

De acord. And yet people still rule it out because it doesn't dominate the desktop :|
Also people, for some reason, refuse to accept Android as a Linux distro :|
