They run on Ubuntu.
To celebrate our upcoming 16.04 LTS we wanted to shine a bit of light on how many people in the world actually use Ubuntu. As users aren’t required to register their installation, devices are pre-loaded with the software and servers powered by Ubuntu – this means it’s not as easy to track users. However the reality is, hundreds of millions of PCs, servers, devices, virtual machines, and containers have booted Ubuntu to date and are in use!
Thanks to a blog Dustin Kirkland , a member of our Product team, wrote we’ve put together an infographic to show you where Ubuntu lives!
