Do you have a source for that statistic? A recent W3Techs survey of web server OS has all Unix & Unix-like (not just Linux) at 64.7%, and Windows at 35.3%. See "Servers" about half way down:

Well greyowl750 may have gotten some of the facts wrong, but his overall point is spot on. Linux, particularly the Unbutu flavors (Unbutu, Mint, etc) are very desktop friendly and a viable alternative for many.

Linux having less than 2% market share I wouldnt call that many.
