The figures are for home users. The situation is quite different in server land.

Are these based on hits to a certain website?

The company I am with only supports windows on their intranet. Our business unit runs an array of ten servers, which are mission-critical-enterprise-double-plus-good; they are all Red Hat.

I used to run Thinkpads with variants of Red Hat on it. My iBook has replaced them. Despite using ubuntu recently and being surprised who neat a package it was, I wont be turning in my Apple Hardware and OSX operating system anytime soon.
