According to, 67 percent of web servers are running some type of Unix operation system. And then out of those computers, 55 percent are using Linux, which is a subcatagory of Unix. I guess that really does put the little peguin (tux) on top of the world. However, just because Linux is great at running big powerful web servers does not mean it doesn’t make a great desktop operating system, because it does. In fact, I’m running my desktop computer on Linux right now to write this blog and I’m very satisfied with the performance.

(from wikipedia) Linux was originally developed as a free operating system for Intel x86-based personal computers. It has since been ported to more computer hardware platforms than any other operating system. It is a leading operating system on servers and other big iron systems such as mainframe computers and supercomputers. As of June 2013, more than 95% of the world’s 500 fastest supercomputers run some variant of Linux, including all the 44 fastest. Linux also runs on embedded systems, which are devices whose operating system is typically built into the firmware and is highly tailored to the system; this includes mobile phones, tablet computers, network routers, facility automation controls, televisions and video game consoles. Android, which is a widely used operating system for mobile devices, is built on top of the Linux kernel.

I guess the world really does run on linux.
