A 6-million figure has showed up in another article today, this time
for the number of Ubuntu CDs that has been distributed until now:

"Shuttleworth believes India encouraged the early adoption of ICTs,
"Distributing CDs is a labour of love. We've distributed six million

it because I feel it's the right think to do."
