Linux desktop adoption is on the upswing.
For the first time in nearly 20 years, more Linux desktops are being sold than desktops for sale.
The number of Linux desktop sales in the U.S. and Europe grew 15% last year, according to analytics firm IDC.
More Linux desktops are on the way.
The trend has taken root in part because the Ubuntu Linux desktop is gaining in popularity among companies and organizations.
“As Linux gets more mainstream, it’s only natural that we see more interest in using Linux on a variety of platforms,” said David Fenton, CEO of Linux Foundation.
The Linux desktop Linux is the most popular operating system, according a 2015 report from the Linux Foundation and other independent organizations. “
So, in the short term, the Linux desktop has a lot of potential to become more ubiquitous, but it will take time for this to translate into a major shift in the way we work, communicate, and play.”

The Linux desktop dominates desktops across the board and has a growing market share in the enterprise, enterprise-focused and education markets.
The Ubuntu Linux distribution is the Linux distribution most widely used for servers and other enterprise applications.
Ubuntu has a strong base of users in the world’s biggest industries, including banking, finance, healthcare, media, and education.
“With Ubuntu’s strong base, we expect a strong growth in the Ubuntu desktop and its ecosystem over the next several years,” Fenton said.
“Ubuntu has been growing at an average annual rate of about 30% over the past few years, with an even higher rate of growth in recent quarters.”
Fenton says the Ubuntu Desktop is more popular than Windows and Mac.
The desktop is being sold at a faster pace than ever before.
“The Linux community has seen tremendous growth, with Linux gaining in market share, with Ubuntu increasing in market shares, with more businesses adopting Linux as an operating system,” Finton said.
“Ubuntu continues to lead in market penetration and usage of Ubuntu and its desktop.
Ubuntu is more widely used than Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh.”
The rise in desktop Linux adoption was not a one-time event, Fenton says.
It’s part of a global trend.
The popularity of Linux in the last decade has seen the adoption of Linux desktop in the most diverse and powerful organizations, including healthcare, banking, education, finance and media.
The Linux Desktop is growing faster than deskttops for sales.
Linux deskts are now more popular, Finton says, because the Linux Desktop can be configured with more customization options, and Linux has become a standard in enterprise-centric computing.
Fenton expects Linux desktop will be used in the workplace for a long time.
The Linux-powered desktop is becoming more popular and has now become a common desktop in enterprise environments,” Fonden said. “
But we’re starting to see it become more widely adopted in the larger companies and businesses, and we’re seeing it in the education and media markets.”
“The Linux-powered desktop is becoming more popular and has now become a common desktop in enterprise environments,” Fonden said.
He said Linux desk tops are used in banking, financial services, and healthcare.
“Linux is a widely used platform in the healthcare world, where Linux-based products are often the primary means of access to healthcare data.”
Fonden says the Linux-driven desktop will continue to grow in popularity in the future.
Linux will remain the platform that delivers enterprise-class software.
Fondens predictions are for the Linux stack to continue to be the predominant operating system for desktops and other products.
“The trend of using Linux for the enterprise is the trend we want to see, because it’s the right operating system and the right platform for the business world.
It doesn’t make sense to use Windows or Mac for most enterprise tasks,” Fonds said.
