For mobile devices:

Android OS, based mostly on Linux (#1 now? I think so)
IOS for apple devices
whatever M$ calls theirs -- a distant third

Servers

Linux probably the majority of the big iron; Redhat and derivatives on many of those
FreeBSD also quite common I believe
Other Unix-like OSs and M$

For routers and other single-purpose devices used on large networks:
Linux or other Unix variants mostly

Consumer devices: routers, mp3 players, ... rice cookers, toasters(?!?)
probably some flavor of Linux or other Unix

Desktops
Windows still dominates
Mac OS, a derivative and/or close relative of FreeBSD -- about 8% last time I looked
Linux -- about 1% last time I looked

This is all off the top of my head. Between consumer devices and enterprise network devices besides the ones I specifically named, there are probably more total OSs than in all the other items I listed. Generically these are called "embedded devices" in the industry. Which are growing fastest? My guess would be embedded devices, followed by mobiles.

So far, a pure numbers game. Maybe we ought to weight each computer according to it's capacity, to see where the majority of the heavy lifting is done.

Some statistics here from NetMarketShare and W3Schools. Those are desktop / thinkpad based statistics and the clear winner of course is Windows.
The statistics in Wikipedia for Server (Web) show that Windows has only a share of roughly 1/3. The rest is UNIX and Mac OS.

Android must be no. 1. (Well, it is built off of linux so, I guess that puts linux at no. 1. Hurray for open source !)

Apart of all these Android devices that appeared during the last few year almost all routers are running with a kind of Linux
