Get counted at the linux counter



One of the problems with “free software” that can be downloaded and installed on multiple machines without expense or legal recourse, is that it’s sometimes hard to know how many people run it. Yes, sure there are web statistics that might tell you if someone is using a different platform than windows. But what about those machines that don’t get used for web browsing, but sit firewalling or mail serving, or file serving their lives away without even getting to be a statistic in the big scheme of “market share” debates?


Enter the Linux counter a web site determined to be the “census taker” for all of linuxdom, so if you like and have a linux machine running somewhere, go and get it counted. The details on location and name can be kept private if you like, or maybe you can be the first in your community to plant the linux flag.
