The Linux Counter is run by a nonprofit membership organization called the Linux Counter Project.
This organization was created on May 1, 1999, taking over the running of the counter from Harald Tveit Alvestrand, who has been running the project since 1993.Harald Alvestrand is chief executive officer of the organization.
The Linux Counter is started as a “for fun” project to find out how many Linux users there are worldwide. The basic idea is for people to register themselves as being a Linux user. Of course, this way you won’t get all Linux users counted as not every Linux user will register himself at the Linux Counter site.
Thus, the only way to “know” the number of Linux users worldwide, is to make a guess, preferably a not-too-wild guess of the number of Linux users. Not making wild guesses there is only one way to go: statistics.
