This is the Linux Counter summary as of Sun Jul 31 23:33:45 2005

There are 144782 persons registerd.
738 users have been registered by friends.
There are 153949 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
2,895,640 and 72,391,000 people.

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