Are most Slackers in Europe these days?


It looks like a lot of the people in this forum seem to be posting from Europe. Their posts would appear over what, to me, is overnight.

Is that where Slackware's popularity has moved to?

(I know that ruario, Alien Bob and LuckyCyborg are there...).

Excuse me, even I am happy to see my name in this select company, I am not sure if I subscribe to your definition of "European".

Geographically, I live somewhere in the North of Europe, near Finland, but my country has on East side the Japan and Alaska as neighbors, and precisely we are not part of European Union.

If you refer to European citizens, I am not one, if you refer to Europe as continent, yes, and I live in its North.
