Year of the Linux desktop.
It's not enough that /g/ is utterly retarded when it comes to technology, you're also unable to properly read and make sense of a chart.
You idiots should try and think how many more hits google gets now compared to 2005.
The internet was a lot smaller back in 2005
If Google bases the stats on quantity of overall searches then it would look like interest is declining while what is really happening is that there are simply more different searches unrelated to linux. While overall interest remains the same.
Honestly though Linux would be dead if Google didn't use it. Also distros do appear to be suffering from abandonment.
Not dead but smaller.
The fact that Google uses Linux is pretty much irrelevant.
Their contributions to the kernel are tiny compared to redhat/intel/ibm.
Not to mention they've done shit-fuck on the more superficial level of it.
>Honestly though Linux would be dead if Google didn't use it.
Probably, except of in servers, embedded systems, research and mainframes.
>Are you the same retard from the other thread whining about how the CLI is always a downgrade from the GUI? I'd like to remind you that you're still retarded.
No but I can't stand CLI fags. The kind of people who listen mp3 with a command line application.
I never said anything about the CLI. You just associated me with it because I'm posting pro-Linux. You have absolutely no real rebuttal and are just looking for things to call people out on.
what is the difference?
I mean if you have your command line application that plays music and you have your graphical music application, what would be different?
Searching for music is still done by a keyboard, play/pause / skip is still done by media keys.
wow it's nothing
(windows 8.1 and windows vista are omitted due to comparison limit, both significantly less than xp)
yes, I think it has more to do with less interest in desktops in general than less interest in just linux. And from your graph we can see that as interest in Windows drops, interest in Linux stays the same. So not the year of Linux desktop but not the end of it either (that probably will never happen).
HAVE FUN WITH YOUR EXPLOITS M8
>>I fucking hate you for not using bloated proprietary software!
But I don't hate you because you don't use proprietary software. I hate you because you are the fucking cancer of the tech world.
a cuking cancer in the tech world.
There are certain people where all you can really do is insult, because you know no matter what you say they're going to either not understand, misunderstand, or just not care. You seem to be one of those people.
>I'll call him retarded
>that'll show him
>god I'm smrt
Your post >>52615227 is where I called you retarded initially, because you fail to see that Linux is a big thing, and not because of Google specifically. Google could not exist ever and Linux would probably still be a thing today.
Only one of the things anon listed.
>Nah, you are just butthurt you can't do the same. I bet you salivate over desktop threads and their 1337 glowing green terminals.
You are right. Those VT100 emulation modes are so leet. One day I'm going to be so 1337 to enjoy the experience of computing like it's 1972.
Poor linuxfags, I'm sorry for them.
And? Why do I care if other people use Linux on the desktop? Wider Linux adoption is only going to result in floods of why won't my *.exes work and etc. stupid questions to sift through while doing things like troubleshooting
Of they spent 10% of the effort used for desktop ricing on actual gpu drivers and better software compatibility overall they would have had a real shot when Windows 10 arrived. But no, instead we we get to have a look at their grey and pink minimalist DE with CP pics that are cartoons so they can argue they're not actually a pedo.
Year of the linux desktop has been here for ages.
Lots of businesses and governments use Linux because they don't want to pay for Windows licenses.
>Especially within Technology, Legal and Higher Education, as unlicensed/pirated software is quite costly for those arenas.
It's only getting more exposure as the years go on, and it's sort of hit a point where it doesn't matter for a lot of corporate environments any more since there is such a focus on BYOD.
MS will continue making their cash with Windows Server, Exchange and Office.
Apple hardware will become more prevalent in business due to BYOD.
The consumer desktop though?
~2020 except it won't be desktop since the desktop will be dead and most plebs will only be using android and the like.
You will never be a 1337 *nix wizard-hacker like me if you don't understand the usefulness of mpd/ncmpcpp over a home network.
>b-but my clickable buttans
Guess what fag, you can get those too.
This is point when Linux died, and now we got only Ubuntu®™-
Linux will survive, just in mobile form.
Increasing interest in the wrong sort of projects is how nerds writing software for nerds, by nerds give up and buy macs since they can no longer escape the bloat
If the normies and corporate faggots leave we might be left with a decent alternative to UNIX that isn't totally OS X-ified
>Increasing interest in the wrong sort of projects is how nerds writing software for nerds, by nerds give up and buy macs since they can no longer escape the bloat
This garbage violates the English grammar in multiple ways
Took a tour of the Red Stone Arsenal in Huntsville AL. All of the technical fields ran Red Hat Fedora. Missles? Linux. Destructive/Nondestructive testing? Linux. Statics and analysis? Linux. Linux do what windon't, my friends.
