This is the Linux Counter summary as of Tue Aug 31 19:37:13 2004

There are 144641 persons registerd.
1407 users have been registered by friends.
There are 145051 machines registered.

I guesstimate that between 0.2% and 5% of all Linux users have
registered with the Linux Counter.
So the total number of Linux users is probably between
2,892,820 and 72,320,500 people.

WHERE LINUX USERS LIVE
The table is sorted by number of Linux users divided by population
