Few months ago there was a bug where the survey was detecting something incorrectly. Could be the same

I believe it still detected the parts as AMD even though it was the incorrect AMD. But it's a good guess.

Yeah, that could be.

It could also be that AMD is making gains in the CPU/GPU market share.

Does say something when after all the decades of "it's the year of Linux" VR is still more popular

Reminds me of the line “current year + 1 will always be the year Linux Gaming takes over”

As a Linux user... it's definitely not the "year of Linux" and won't be for quite some time. I love Linux, but I wouldn't recommend it to 99% of people I know. I think people get carried away because the user experience has apparently improved so much over the last few years, but it's still not there yet.

Yep I know, it's just that for decades certain Linux devotes are constantly claiming that "this is the year of the desktop Linux revolution" and refuse to understand, as you do understand, that it's simple not made for general users to be doing everything on
