comment How much is Google investing in the Go language?
I am just worried about Google suddenly cutting on exactly the services I have began to love and depend on. One of them being Google Answers.

At the moment, it seems to be the best figures I can get, but thanks for pointing out some uncertainty factors I had not yet thought about.

Excellent! Now I have a statistic from one user, so now there are only 399.999.999 users left to get such data from. Are you up for the challenge?

@Anna Lear. Point taken. I have modified the question drastically now. I am sure there are statistics about this. If you can just reopen the question, the community can help me find it.

It is very relevant if you consider whether to create freeware or not. If the answer to this question was that the average computer has 0.0001 freeware installed then it is probably not a good idea to develop something and release it as freeware. If the answer is 20 freeware, then this means that there is such a huge number of users, which uses freeware (compared for example to software) that it might pay off to release something as freeware and possibly live off the support or consuling.
