Chris Kenyon (Chris Kenyon), vice-president of Canonical, told a reporter InternetNews.com, that the number of users of Ubuntu[/[t:tag slug=ubuntu-linux]Ubuntu Linux has reached 12 million, or 50% more than was announced in autumn 2008. The method of estimating the number of users of the distribution is approximate, based on indirect signs, such as the number of downloaded copies of the distribution and intensity of the updates. Nevertheless, over the past 18 months, the method of calculation has not changed, which suggested that the increase in the number of users, from 8 to 12 million reflects the real nature of the growing popularity of the distribution.
