For that matter, people who have multiple computers behind their routers are
probably more likely to be running Linux than the average user.
I really can't think of any good way to come up with an accurate idea of how
many Linux machines are out there. The big question for the marketing types
is probably a different one, anyway. They want to know how many
business/institutional users are going to run Linux. Those are the people
they will be selling to.
One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all, and in the Darkness bind them,
In the land of Redmond, where the Sales Reps lie.
