Sounds like revisionist history to me. Some blogs made a huge stink about the Amazon Shopping Lens but in reality Ubuntu\'s popularity never wavered. It was the most popular desktop distro by a huge margin back then and that\'s still true today. Linux enthusiasts\' opinions don\'t influence Ubuntu\'s popularity one bit. I wonder why the writer thinks otherwise...
Oh. I guess that explains the delusional views on distro popularity present on the page.
I\'m probably going to make quite a few changes to this aspect of the page and perhaps even update the recent history parts of it. Steam OS, for example, wasn\'t a bombshell at all and quickly faded back into the obscurity from whence it came.
Why is this article so long? Especially considering the fact that UNIX has almost no relation to any work of fiction on this wiki, and that there is no Windows article despite the fact that nearly all PC games of the past decade at least have been for Windows.
Not complaining, just confused.
Also, important to note that there's an equally exhaustive article on Mac OS.
"UNIX systems are likely to spread further into the consumer desktop environment as Microsoft prepares to bring the Windows product line to an end" seems a bit far-fetched, doesn't it?
Recommended reading for anyone interested in UNIX history:
The Android phone and Google's involvement might be mentioned somewhere, as it's a good example of embedded Linux.
