    Servers? Mostly non graphical, while the most important part of fragmentation comes from toolkits for graphical apps, so the fragmentation (as in different options for frameworks making a lot of apps incompatible or to require loading several libs that does roughly the same thing) is near zero.
    Desktop? Less than 4% market share, at most (so, clearly not "everywhere"), where there is a graphical UI that is highly fragmented between several toolkits. Mostly between GTK and Qt, but there are other options out there.

    Then, one could argue about workstations, but I don't really know what is used there aside from a desktop. AFAIK, most uses Red Hat, which I guess implies GTK/GNOME and trying to avoid fragmentation would mean a better experience in such setting.
    IDK what you were trying to get at there, My point was is Linux was born out of fragmation and fragmation is why Linux is everywhere, people who bitch about anything in the Linux world becoming fragmented should just stick to Windows or Apple.

    Mind to give any argument to such a hypothesis?

    First, I don't really see how Linux was born of fragmentation.
    Second, Linux is really everywhere? Are you sure?
    Then, how do you relate such an idea to being true because of fragmentation.
    I pointed out some of the reasons why I think it's not true, and that fragmentation hurts Linux, instead of helping it. You didn't gave any reasons to believe what you say.
