What's most amazing about this statistic is that it was for iPads only; no iPhones or iPods. So we can only imagine how much wider the iOS-Linux margin would have been had it included the full Apple mobile fleet.
And the iPad-predominance wasn't just in the iPad's home market. In the U.K., the iPad bested Linux with 0.94% to 0.74%. In Canada, the iPad had 0.91% versus Linux's 0.76%. The greatest margin was in the iOS-obsessed Australia, where the iPad had 1.19% to Linux's 0.66%.
Considering Apple's tablet is barely a year old, this accomplishment is pretty amazing. But one problem with Apple's success is that people become desensitized to it. So let's take a step back from the Android-iOS rivalry, and just appreciate that a single mobile device has bested a desktop OS.
