A new ‘Linux counter’ initiative that aims to disprove press claims than Linux is used by less than 1% of the worlds desktop computer users has been launched.

Current estimates of worldwide Linux usage by StatCounter pin it a 0.77% share over the last 12 months, and a slightly lower figure of 0.75% since they began taking records.

Oddly, Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer has often contested this view stating that he suspects Linux market share is in fact greater than that of Mac OS X.
