Open Source Users Love Google, Hate Microsoft

Daniel Ruby writes "Open Source Users Love Google, Hate Microsoft

Following up on our recent study comparing Bing and Google ad clickthrough rates, we at Chitika started wondering what the breakdown of search engine to operating system looked like. So, we ran the numbers, and 163 million searches later, it's official: Linux users overwhelmingly use Google and won't touch Bing with a ten foot pole. Compare the numbers: while Windows users use Google 78% of the time and Bing 8% of the time, the numbers for Linux users are 95% and 0.77% respectively. No love for Microsoft in the open source community, it seems, even with something as innocuous as a search engine."
