Would it be too much of an exaggeration to say that the most 
prevalent operating system running today is "none"?

Consider the controls in house thermostats, microwave ovens, washing 
machines, etc.  All computerized; few with any operating system 
whatsoever.  Not to mention the embedded systems in the PC or Mac 
you're sitting in front of.
