11 Million US OpenOffice Users?

Matt Asay writes Does OpenOffice have 11 million active U.S. users?

While Microsoft Office is actively used by roughly 50 percent of U.S. Internet users, according to a 2,400-strong survey administered by ClickStream Technologies, 5 percent of U.S. Web users also actively use the open-source productivity suite

Importantly, ClickStream wasn’t measuring installations. It was measuring use. The company actually installed client-side software that tracked which applications the users were running.

Based on the population of the US and the number of internet users, Asay calculates OOo users in the USA to number 11 million, concluding:

An estimated 11 million people interacting with OpenOffice on a daily basis sounds like an incredible beachhead for much broader market penetration.
