He asked who knows about Debian (Something like that). I also raised 
hand but it's not my favorite distribution. I raised this issue as 
although the conference was dominated by one distro on the name tags I 
could see a variety.

Also tridge told in this talk "... whether it runs on Debian or the 
other half systems of the world ..." but the statistics don't point in 
that direction.

That's why I asked for break-up by numbers. When I asked  Geoffrey 
Bennett, he told that Michael Davies will announce the numbers in 
conference closing speech  but then it wasn't for some reason. So he 
suggested to ask this question on the mailing list. But now I am not 
interested to know break-up.


PS: This mail has no intention to initiate a flame war.
