"Fact-based", "Real", "True", "Best", "Proven"... all marketing terms.

E.g., we already know that all long-distance companies are cheaper than all

Or, as Rick Rashid pointed out to me once, during my first year of grad
school, when I described something in a paper as a "truly distributed
operating system"... "what is a falsely distributed operating system?"

P.S. Perhaps the weasel word was "industry" as in "in its September survey
of the Web server industry, Windows NT Server is used for 54 percent of Web
servers". If you're using Linux, then perhaps you're just an amateur and
therefore not part of the "Web server industry".
