I do remember reading an interview with with some Epic representative
where he was asked about the Linux client port and if they thought it
was worth the effort and the answer was that they believed that the got
value out of doing the port.  I also remember that and some round
numbers as to the break-down of the clients (possibly by percent).

Now my memory can be totally farked up and the numbers I remember may be
totally wrong or may have been mixed with some commenter's guestimates.
I may even be mixing up interviews with different people but there was
at one point a semi-official quote as to the number of Linux clients at
one point.
