If you pursue a realistic indicator, come to consider the fact the Linux is
the fastest growing server, in terms of sales. Moreover, most of the world's

(or monopoly) on the desktop, Windows was never able to penetrate the server
markets (unless you gauge it by costs for overpriced server solutions).
