There's a website, called, "The Linux Counter," where you can register as a Linux user and also register the information about your system. No mailing lists or anything, it seems, if you choose to register. Once you register, you get a cool little Linux logo, showing you as a registered Linux user, with your registered user number.

From the website, you can see a breakdown by country, state and city, as to how many registered Linux users there are in each place. Also, you can see how long Linux boxes have been up without a reboot. Kind of cool to be able to look at the statistics, I thought!

Anyway, if you're interested, the website is:

You might find it interesting to check out and register as a Linux user. All distros of Linux are welcome!

    I registered several years ago when first I become an Linux devote. However, I've forgotten both password and usr name as well as registration number. I've tried several times using the link you gave, but I cannot connect - I don't know what's wrong but will try to hook-up and get my number [or] perhaps register again.

    My original registration was several years and email addresses ago. I needed to send an email to London to ask for staff help. I suppose it would be simpler to simply register. I have an idea that's what the folks in London will suggest. What Linux box do you run? I run two old boxs' Dell Dimension L566cx and hp pavilion 9870 with Vector 7.0 light and Vector 7.0 Std. Gold, respectively.
