Has the iPad really overtaken Linux?

According to numbers from StatusCounter,  the iPad has bypassed Linux in terms of web surfing in the US, Canada, UK, Australia and The Netherlands.  As a Linux enthusiast I find it disturbing but at the same time it makes complete sense.

The OS battle is between Windows, Apple and Linux. Windows and Apple dominate but Apple has a very strong grip in the market, due to its great fan/user base.

I would say, with no fear of being wrong, that most users browsing the web with an iPad, do also from their Mac[add here you preference] computer. Without playing down the quality of the product, I believe the iPad is basically taking a piggy-back ride.
