The Year Of Linux On Everything But The Desktop In 2017

So MS-Windows wins the desktop, but Linux takes the world in form of Android, routers, servers, cloud computing, IoT and much more.

From the article:

ZDNet, a tech news site we can’t believe is still around, has declared the winner in the desktop wars: It’s Linux, because the desktop became irrelevant. This news comes on the heels of Linus Torvalds releasing the new 4.10 kernel, with the usual chain of steady hardware support improvements. Linux, at the heart of Google’s Android operating system, has serenely Linuxed on for over a quarter of a century now, against a steady tide of resistance from proprietary software, and a steady chorus of nay-sayers telling everyone it was impossible.
