    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.
