Not much new here: Linus explains why no one really knows how
many computers are running Linux, and then he goes into a brief
description about the origins of Linux. Yet another stop on the
book tour, it seems.
"Moira: If Linux is free, how can you tell how many computers
are running it?"
Linus: You can't, right? It's really hard. There are some good
estimates, especially in certain areas. IDG makes estimates for how
many servers are running Linux, because then you can actually go
ask corporations, you can actually go on the Internet and kind of
query the machines themselves. So in that area there are good
estimates, but if you are asking how many machines are running
Linux, nobody knows."
