and does any one "REALLY" know what the US or any countries market share
is on the desktop. and how do you count the large percentage who are dual
booting????

all the information and links are at http://leb.net/blinux/

it is partially international in that some languages (such as Japanese)
are supported and some are not, one of the major problems in a open source
enviorenment, someone has to take the time and energy to do the work
voluntarily for it to get done.
