"e wasn?t talking about 20-million new copies of Ubuntu being installed. That?s easy to believe.

"Still, 20-million people buying Ubuntu pre-installed on their computers in the next twelve months? That?s a lot! Indeed, in Canonical?s own recent user survey, a mere 0.1% of Ubuntu users bought their Linux PCs with Ubuntu pre-installed from such vendors as Dell, System76, and ZaReason."
