I hear statistics are helpful in quantum physics.

On the other hand, I agree that in this case they are utterly worthless.
First and foremost, this person is grouping Linux and Unix together.
This is the first sign of people not knowing what they are talking
Secondly, this is MS propaganda. I can find/compile a(n) equivalent
number of statistics that show otherwise.
Additionally, your statement: "That's the reality, you need to stick
with it" shows me that this person takes such numbers to heart and no
amount of deductive logic is going to change their distorted perception
Finally, they forgot to include the reference.
