    What sort of proof do you need? A video showing Gabe trampling on a Tux plush?
    To convince people in this thread you need linus in that video

    Steam will be released for Linux around the time Duke Nukem Forever is released.

    Don't worry. Dnf is now in the hands of Gearbox and a demo is planned to be released shortly ("I'm feeling this christmas!" -duke).

    Default What happens when OS X gets to 5% ?

    Default Not a good source.

    That is only from those who visited the w3c schools website, so that skews heavily techy, so Linux will be disproportionately represented.
    The one I gave, OTOH, is gathered from around 30 000 sites, IIRC.
    Still, that 4.5% really looks nice

    The W3C Schools stats are not particularly relevant to this topic, but they are quite interesting. If Linux can become dominant among the tech crowd, this will be a prelude to mass adoption. Tech people are often in the position of making decisions that affect thousands of users.

    There is Red Flag Linux for China, 32 something million custom KDE builds in Brazil and 700.000 something KDE builds elsewhere. Then there is about a lot of million Ubuntu installs, lot of million Fedora installs, few million SuSE&Co installs.

    If you would sell five percent of these people games at $20 and assume that all of that is 100.000.000 home use Linux installs then;
    100.000.000*0,05*20 = 100.000.000$
    Assume you make 5% profit then;
    100.000.000*0,05 = 5 million dollar profit.

    No market, huh... ?
