So, when I write about millions of users of GNU/Linux for personal IT, they are out there. This is far from an exhaustive list but a few minutes of searching the web. The whole of Europe is near 1.5% share of page-views from GNU/Linux and Norway is over 3%. Europe is a hot bed of activity with governments promoting and sharing ideas about how to implement FLOSS and GNU/Linux on clients and servers. A lot of activity is in schools where students will be introduced to FLOSS and run with it. I expect GNU/Linux to become more available and widely accepted in Europe in the next few years.
