It may be hard to believe but Linspire is claiming to have 1 million users. Assume for a second that these numbers are actual users and not those who tried and switched back to Windows. Now, if you look at Linspire's presence of the Web, blogs and news, it's about a third of Ubuntu and Debian and less than a tenth of SuSE and Red Hat. Suppose if there's a correlation between Mind share on the Web and number of Linux users, then it may be safe to assume that there are at least 30 million Linux users worldwide.
