    Question How many *buntu users are there actually?

    Just curious... Does anyone know how many *buntu (* means Ubuntu, kubuntu,xubuntu etc all the derivatives of Ubuntu) users are out there? In this post in the second point, it is mentioned that "According to Wikipedia, Ubuntu passed 100 million users in April 2009" but without any reference.

    I am wondering how many people are using Ubuntu (and it's derivatives) these days!
    I am a newbie and I am curious!!

    Is that users or the number of machines with an Ubuntu based distro installed. I am a single user but I have three machines with an Ubuntu based distro installed (1 x Ubuntu, 1 x Ubuntu Netbook Remix, 1 x Mint).

    The Wikipedia page on Ubuntu cites a New York Times article from January 2009 noting that "more than 10 million people are estimated to run Ubuntu today". Your source may be off by a factor of ten.

    Canonical once said there were 8 Million users.

    In short, nobody really knows. Because unlike Windows and Macintosh. Linux users aren't numbered, registered, and tracked.
    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.5GHz
    GPU: MSI GTX 260 w/896MB DDR3 @ 655MHz
    RAM: Kingston HyperX 8GB (4x 2GB) DDR3 2000
    HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB (2x fake RAID0)

    I'm trying PHP, so my code can probably be labelled "bad and insecure"
