Consider... The RPF has sold about 9 million Pis over 4 years. Approximately 100 million PCs sell *every* year.

The only way the Pi could be more than a trivially minor blip on world computer sales is that it is *possible* that the Pi accounts for a significant fraction of new consumer Linux systems each year.
