There is no way of knowing exactly how many people use GNU/Linux nor how many computers run GNU/Linux desktops but it would be interesting to know roughly what order of magnitude we are talking about. Fortunately there are some statistics that can give us a hint. These shares and trends are all predictions but anyway, interesting to take a look at.
