Linux is dying. Netcraft confirms it.
It is now official. Netcraft has confirmed: Linux is dying.

One more crippling bombshell hit the already beleaguered Linux community when IDC confirmed that Linux market share has dropped yet again, now down to less than a fraction of 1 percent of all servers. Coming on the heels of a recent Netcraft survey which plainly states that Linux has lost more market share, this news serves to reinforce what we've known all along. Linux is collapsing in complete disarray, as fittingly exemplified by failing dead last [samag.com] in the recent Sys Admin comprehensive networking test.You don't need to be the Amazing Kreskin [amazingkreskin.com] to predict Linux's future. The hand writing is on the wall: Linux faces a bleak future. In fact there won't be any future at all for Linux because Linux is dying. Things are looking very bad for Linux. As many of us are already aware, Linux continues to lose market share. Red ink flows like a river of blood. Mint is the most endangered of them all, having lost 93% of its core developers. The sudden and unpleasant departures of long time Linux Mint developers Jordan Hubbard and Mike Smith only serve to underscore the point more clearly. There can no longer be any doubt: Linux Mint is dying.Let's keep to the facts and look at the numbers. Ubuntu leader Theo states that there are 7000 users of Ubuntu. How many users of Ubuntu are there? Let's see. The number of Mint versus Ubuntu posts on Usenet is roughly in ratio of 5 to 1. Therefore there are about 7000/5 = 1400 Ubuntu users. Linux/Win10 posts on Usenet are about half of the volume of Ubuntu posts. Therefore there are about 700 users of Linux Mint/Win10. A recent article put Linux Mint at about 80 percent of the Linux market. Therefore there are (7000+1400+700)*4 = 36400 Mint users. This is consistent with the number of Mint Usenet posts.Due to the troubles of Walnut Creek, abysmal sales and so on, Mint went out of business and was taken over by Linux Int. who sell another troubled OS. Now Ubuntu is also dead, its corpse turned over to yet another charnel house.All major surveys show that Linux has steadily declined in market share. Linux is very sick and its long term survival prospects are very dim. If Linux is to survive at all it will be among OS dilettante dabblers. Linux continues to decay. Nothing short of a miracle could save it at this point in time. For all practical purposes, Linux is dead.

That crippling bombshell sent Linux fans into a tailspin of mourning and denial. However, bad news poured in like a river of water.

Linux was good when there was nobody hacking it and it started to get popular as a result.

I'm sure Bill Gates got right on that job.

Complete nonsense. On the desktop it isn’t popular, but lots of servers run it as do all Android devices.

Bullshit. Linux is used in just about every embedded device on the planet.

No. Even Micro$oft is moving their applications to Linux with .Net Core Framework and Windows 10 gained the ability to run Linux inside of it in last months. Linux is not dying but MS tries to own it becvause of its independency.
