    there are several countries and cities that are using or starting to convert to their own builds of ubuntu. I just read that Munich just completed a changeover of 150,000 computers and plans more. Brazil I think it was just started to convert to their build.
    The only dumb question is the one not asked.

    ah yes, china probably by sheer population size.

    but if you mean percentage of the population ? well perhaps the USA, just because of silicon valley

    Opinion only...

    If the question were "What country uses Linux most?", the responses may be different. From what I have experienced, companies use Red Hat, SUSE, and CentOS more than Ubuntu.

    I don't think there is an accurate way to actually measure where it (Linux or Ubuntu) is used most. Company servers don't typically access the internet websites using browsers, which is the way many of the OS share statistics are determined.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    Probably, but the question didn't ask about percentages.

    And if by percentage, I'd probably lean more toward somewhere like the UK, as a guess.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Linux_adopters

    At least one of our states is using it.

    The Government of Kerala, India, announced its official support for free/open-source software in its State IT Policy of 2001,[7] which was formulated after the first-ever free software conference in India, "Freedom First!", held in July 2001 in Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala, where Richard Stallman inaugurated the Free Software Foundation of India.[8] Since then, Kerala's IT Policy has been significantly influenced by FOSS, with several major initiatives such as IT@School Project, possibly the largest single-purpose deployment of Linux in the world, and leading to the formation of the International Centre for Free and Open Source Software (ICFOSS) in 2009.

    Well China probably has the most of anything in terms of absolute numbers But on a per capita base I would think perhaps Spain would have a very high level of Linux adoption.
