How many computers with Ubuntu?

Asked by DanielCar on 2007-06-12

I'm talking to some co-workers. They say Fedora is great because it has 1.6 million installs. I'm wondering what I can say about Ubuntu. I found the wikipedia page that says 6 million requests for free CDs. Is there some web page that says number of downloads or installs of Ubuntu?

This will help advocate Ubuntu.

Thanks,
Daniel

Hi, our official response on this matter is that we want to keep this information quiet for now.

There are a lot of Ubuntu users around the world and the number is growing at a startling rate, especially as we add OEMs who offer Ubuntu or a derivative pre-installed. If you want to brag about Ubuntu, there are a number of awesome features - single cd for both installing and evaluating as a live cd, support for an extremely wide range of desktop hardware, simple, clean interface and pioneering features such as upstart.
