Is that number obtained from Fedora downloads or something? I
wouldn't be surprised if desktop usage of bleeding-edge kernels is
near 100%, since basically all desktop machines are x86 these days.
I think that number would be biased against server and embedded
machines, but without knowing exactly what you're counting it's hard
to say.

In any case, I don't think the number of machines is particularly
relevant. Linux runs on maybe 1% of all desktop machines in the
world, according to numbers I've seen, but that doesn't make it
irrelevant or not worth working on.

Paul.
