Macs are easier to count (sales figures), but based on some Web statistics,
it is very likely that Linux is ahead. I see the Linux figures ahead of Mac
OS while "Other/s", which stand at ~10%, are most likely UNIX
derivatives/variants/alternatives. The number of people who I know settled
on dual-boot is rather high. They don't stand out from the crowd because the
desktop/laptop does not have a Big Apple forged onto it.
