Hi Jomali

Agreed iOS and OSX are built from portions of BSD, as well as NextStep (OpenStep, once Apple bought out the Next company), but it also does not play a major role in mainframes and servers, but I concede it did for a long time dominate the tablet market, and raised the desktop and laptop computer level to take a slice of the pie away from MS.

And it shows what you know of Linux. FACT, it along with various flavours
of Unix, power the known global Internet servers, Observatories,
MET/weather offices, Space exploration, the Mars machines, the majority of
military machines/equipment, medical equipment, and lo and behold a good
number of desktop, laptops around the world, and the no.1 O/S for mobile -
Android, followed shortly by Firefox O/S and Ubuntu Touch.

You might also include iOS, which is a stripped-down version of OSX, a
flavor of BSD.

You like many, incorrectly and simply refer to the desktop/laptop use of
an O/S, yes where MS currently dominates, but not for long.

Good Day

Just know that they are taking a knock, what with Windows 8 only
migrating into less than 2% of the world market of their existing XP and
Windows 7 base

Windows 8 already has a market share of Windows XP and Vista combined on
newer hardware (It's about 9 times of Linux marketshare, btw.).
