Informed guess, based on number of downloads from main sources, percent
of Delphi users using FB in community, typical applications, some
knowledge of big IB VARs, guess on IB OE/FB download to installation
ratio, observations of Delphi and InterBase/Firebird community for
several years and a crystal ball. It's definitely a rough value, but it's
definitely not out of reality. It's hard to count as guessing how many
computers run Linux.
