Albert Friedrich Emil Niemann. I know he's not British, but his discovery is more associated with £50 notes than anyone else's.

"Anyone sane running services in Ubuntu VMs will be running Ubuntu *Server* edition which cuts out the desktop."
Those of us that are developing cross platform desktop apps will probably find this very useful. Not everyone is a server administrator!
Currently I have a Surface Pro 3 and duel boot it because Ubuntu running in a VM doesn't seem to support the high dpi screen. I know I could probably get this working with a different virtualisation platform, but it's easier to use the one build into the host OS.
It is never clear from these charts whether total Windows usage has stayed the same with people switching to the new version or whether there are a load of new Windows users and the number of Windows 7 users has stayed the same. It is likely to be a bit of both but without actual figures it is hard to tell.
These stats are always given as a % of some unknown total. So Android has a bigger percentage and Windows a smaller percentage, but that doesn't necessarily mean that there are less Windows users. It may just mean that the market grew and most the new users chose Android.
