Ubuntu continues to conquer the world, Ubuntu's Google+ community crossed 100,000 members (http://iloveubuntu.net/ubuntu-continues-conquer-world-ubuntus-google-community-crossed-100000-members)

I read somewhere else that 70% is made up. Sound anecdotal evidence clearly beats statistics :P

Statistics? Almost everyone in Sweden has more than the average number of legs.
