Users per country

Quite interesting to see 7 Nordic (8 if you include Estonia near Finand) out of 10 as the most active Linux-countries. USA was no. 38.

Wonder why there is such a large dominance for Nordic countries.

The interesting number is the second last, with the seperator which is users pr million. Source:

I wouldn't count smallest countries (with less than 100 users), because they're just not representative. To get 100 users it's enough to ask friends, family etc. It's true, however, that I meet many Linux users from Nordic countries (Finland, Sweden, Norway).
