This isn't an easy question to answer, or probably even a meaningful
one, especially because it's easy to be a Linux user without knowing it.
E.g., most consumer WiFi routers run Linux. Android phones & tablets run
Linux. Chromebooks run Linux. A lot of set-top boxes run Linux. That's
several billion Linux users from those alone.
You'll have even more issues determining what it means to say a company
Once you've figured out what you mean by a "Linux user", there are
probably some estimates, of varying quality using various methodologies.
