A Good Evening

,----[ Quote ]
| For a young man a good evening is getting 
| âluckyâ. For me it was freeing two PCs from 
| the Wintel monopoly.
| A few community members brought in a sick PC. 
| It was a Lose 2000 box from 2000. Since the OS 
| will soon no longer be supported and they did 
| not like the performance anyway, I suggested 
| using GNU/Linux.


Stats from Distros

| Recent estimates based wholly or partially on 
| such data gives 24 million for Fedora and 12 
| million for Ubuntu. With that information and 
| the rapid growth we all see, the 1% figure 
| bantered about on the web is a joke.


Ubuntu Linux has over 12 million users



Ubuntu Claims 12 Million Users Even Before Lucid Lynx, But on What Basis?

,----[ Quote ]
| This is not even close to Fedoraâs claims of
| its desktop installation user base of 24
| million. The new Ubuntu marks a milestone with
| its LTS release. This release will be
| supported for the next three years.


Ubuntu Claims 12 Million Users as Lucid Linux Desktop Nears

,----[  ]
| Ubuntu Linux is gearing up for the debut of its
| latest release with Ubuntu 10.04, codenamed "the
| Lucid Lynx" and scheduled for general availability at
| the end of the month. It's a release that offers multiple
| new features on the desktop and a new look to Ubuntu Linux.
| The Lucid release could also help to further accelerate
| adoption of Ubuntu, which has been growing over the last
| several years. In 2008, Canonical, the lead commercial sponsor
| behind Ubuntu, pegged the number of Ubuntu users at 8
| million. It's a figure that could have increased by as
| much as 50 percent or more since then, insiders say.
