"With Smolt Linux distribution might be able to get a
better grip of what users are running and how many users they have.
"Smolt is fairly accurate for where it is used, which is to say, at
least today, primarily Fedora users," Ted Ts'o, Linux Foundation
Fellow and chief platform strategist, told InternetNews.com.
""There are plenty of enterprise Linux users that won't use
Smolt today, simply because it is not there, and if it was shipped
with an enterprise Linux distribution, many enterprise Linux
servers are behind firewalls, and thus would not be counted for
Smolt," Ts'o added."
