Market share says nothing about usage, especially not if you run a BSD
or Linux. Apple MUAs and Outlook are not provided by FreeBSD ports.
Note, I'm extensive using iPads, for things they can do way better than
BSD and Linux. If possible I do not use an Internet browser or mailer
available for an iPad, since this is a domain, that is better supported
by BSD and Linux. If somebody is pleased by top market share
applications only, there is no reason to use BSD or Linux at all.
