Is Linux most used OS? As of April 2022, Android, an operating system using the Linux kernel, is the world’s most-used operating system when judged by web use. It has 43% of the global market, followed by Windows with 30%, Apple iOS with 17%, macOS with 6%, then (desktop) Linux at 0.98% also using the Linux kernel.
Why Linux is not popular? Linux doesn’t have a similar widely used environment of apps and services. Besides, there are so many distros and flavors that it is pretty hard to create such a unified ecosystem. Moreover, Linux in fact tries to free you from these ecosystems in a way. So it would be counterproductive to implement one.
Why is Linux so famous? What makes Linux attractive is the free and open source software (FOSS) licensing model. One of the most attractive elements offered by the OS is its price – totally free. Users can download current versions of hundreds of distributions. Businesses can supplement the free price with a support service if needed.
What is the fastest Linux distro? Well Puppy Linux is by far the fastest out of all Linux distros out there.
