I wonder why that is though… does anyone know why Linux came to be more widely used in Europe than other parts of the world?
Well not sure why exactly, but
- Linux was originally developed by Linus Torvalds in Finland (a country in Northern Europe)
- Linux has been quite popular e.g. in Germany and many other European countries, especially in universities and scientific institutions
- there is a natural need to have a real competition against Microsoft and Apple operating systems and applications
But as you know, Linux kernel is used in Android, too… So that alone makes Linux a worldwide thing nearly everybody uses.
