It might be a dubious distinction at best, but it's one that Apple has had for a very long time: second most popular desktop operating system. Now that mantle appears destined to belong to Linux. According to Hewlett-Packard of Palo Alto, California, shipments of computers running desktop Linux should overtake Apple OS systems later this year, although other analysts maintain the Cupertino, California, Macintosh maker has already fallen to the number-three spot in the pecking order.

This claim is dubious, at best. See

which show Mac is 3% of google hits, while Linux is 1%. So, on the -desktop- Macs are certainly still well ahead of Linux.
