Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris It's been a troubling couple of weeks for Mandriva, but I decided not to report on it since I found it hard to unravel the events leading up to all this. Now, though, the story has come to its (logical) conclusion: now that most of Mandriva's employees have been laid off, they came together and forked Mandriva. Enter Mageia.

Linux distros ~= a few hundred
Linux (desktop) users (according to Ballmer): slightly > Mac Osx users ~= 7% of desktop users ~= (rough estimate) 35 million users.

35 million >>> a few hundred.


Stop taking everything so literally. His comment quite clearly meant that the last thing we need is an yet another linux distro. The numbers themselves are irrelevant, learn to hyperbole.
