How many files and folders do you got?

Right now im moving files and folders from two 80GBs FAT32 HDs to a new Seagate 200GB
with ReiserFS(should i have used Ext3 or JFS? ),
and after konqueror (i use XFCE but hate the filemanager) counted all the stuff
on the new partition i got over 120 000 files and 9000 folders!!! This does NOT include installed
linux software and everything that came with Slackware 10.

Right now im triyng to organize everything but its going to take days to clean up the mess :S .
So my question is: how many files and folders do you guys have on your computers?

Well, I recently reinstalled my linux box and copied .gaim, .gkrellm, .icons and .evolution from my user area and between them they have a little over 10,000 files.
I was surprised!
