"e wasn?t talking about 20-million new copies of Ubuntu being
installed. That?s easy to believe. True, desktop Linux has only a
fraction of the total desktop market, but there are certainly tens
of millions of Linux users. Mind you, there are hundreds of
millions of Mac OS X users and over a billion Windows users.
"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."
