Ubuntu Won’t Be Reaching Its Goal Of 200 Million Users This Year

Shuttleworth had hoped for this particular milestone four years ago, but current estimates suggest that the OS still has a long way to go.

Back when Mark announced the 200 million goal, he likely anticipated Ubuntu on phones and tablets being common place by 2015. There was also the short-lived Ubuntu TV plan and perhaps even on his mind then was Ubuntu for cars. Sadly, those dreams haven't come to fruition. This goal is reminiscent of GNOME's failed 10x10 plan of having 10% of the global desktop market by 2010.
