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.
