Ubuntu is now available for download on the Windows Store

Microsoft announced at its Build 2017 developer conference earlier this year that Ubuntu would be heading to the Windows Store, and now the popular Linux distro is available to download.

It’s intriguing that Microsoft allows Linux to be downloaded from the Windows Store. This will surely make it easier for users to download, install and setup Linux on their PC.

Finally, Google’s Android beats Microsoft’s Windows as world’s most popular OS

Google’s Android has finally usurped Microsoft’s Windows’ throne as the world’s most popular operating system. dependent web analytics company StatCounter found that Android topped the total internet usage across desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile combined at 37.93 percent. Windows is at 37.91 percent – second for the first time. This is based on global internet usage data for March.

Not a surprising stats.

Since the number of phones sold is greater than the number of windows PC sold. Android’s lead will still increase in the coming year and I can see iOS devices overtaking Windows in the next 5 years or less.
