Linux and the Market, sometimes confusing!


Some confusion about Linux Market Share

On the CNN  Tech News site I did read about the 20 years anniversary of Linux and that Linux has 1% market share. I Also heard at an Oracle presentation that Linux has 4 % market share. The picture of the CNN TechNews site is shown below. But looking further into the matter, about what is the actual market share of Linux, I came across what is generally recognized as a reliable source from Gartner and Wikipedia, they came up with 2.07% for Linux market share. A cash be seen in the table below this means that Redhat Linux still has a revenue that is higher then that of Apple in April 2011 according to Gartner. Still CNN thinks that Linux has not really done well the last 20 Years?
