Your assessment is grossly biased.

Have a look:



Clearly, for an operating systems whose prevalence is still different, the
number  of  searches  is similar. Mind you, Linux users favour  Linux  and
Google began as a Linux-biased search engine (see the Alexa Time Machine).
This  seems to indicate that,t in contrary to what you find 'in the wild',
Linux  is  heavily  sought after and probably heavily used, as  well.  the
graphs  are not truly scaled, neighter logarithmically nor by aligning the
heads  and  tails  of the two interlaced plots. The links  above  seem  to
defend this argument. If you look at nationalised breakdown, you will  see
that plenty of contibution to Linux comes from large nations in the East.
