Could this be taken as a proof that the Slashdot readership does not represent the demography of computer users? Indeed, news for nerds.
It is always luscious to observe that with the 1 % market share, the users of a particular operating system feel strong enough to downplay other systems.
It is even more groovy to observe that the 1 % market share actually turns out to be 99 % market share. Only in Slashdot.
This all leads to a question: how much of that 1 % market share is represented by the awkward socio-economic group called "fanboys"?
