Pretty pointless - what is other?
100% for other clearly crap data

There is no way this report is reasonable. For example, Apple publishes unit shipments for Macs. They ship about 5% of PCs. To be at 18% share, Macs would have to live three times longer than non-Mac PCs.

Similarly, even NetApplications shows GNU/Linux at more than 1% share and with very high rates of growth. There are countries such as Brazil, Russia, India, China, and Malaysia where the government is switched to GNU/Linux and promotes GNU/Linux in schools. Most major OEMs produce and sell PCs with GNU/Linux.
