-----------------------------------------------------------------

This is the Linux Counter summary as of Wed Jun 1 00:33:40 2011

There are 121583 persons registerd.
501 users have been registered by friends.
There are 126103 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
2,431,660 and 60,791,500 people.
