| Unlike many surveys that land on the desks of IT journos each week, the one 
| done by Canonical and Red Monk was based on a very large number of responses. 
| People from 6,819 companies answered questions about the operating systems 
| they have deployed in their organizations and how these OSes are used to 
| support mission-critical and other workloads. (You can see the results of the 
| survey here). About 55.5 per cent of those polled for the Ubuntu server 
| survey came from Europe, with 28.4 per cent coming from North America, 1.7 
| per cent from Africa, 5.2 per cent from Asia, and 5.2 per cent from Latin
