what does it means, there are around 30 000 users of sme in the world ?....it's not enough!!!!
betchern0t posted his concerns about possible "shrinkage" and byte posted a link to the current stats however the point of the number of current servers is missed (and misleading) without more history.
What is missing here is the growth that is not shown by such a short amount of time (9 weeks). This does not show the growth over the past couple of years.
Smolt Estimates (from memory)...
At time of implementation (around Sept 2007) 10,000 Servers.
Approx 1 year ago 20,000 Servers.
Today there are 30,000+ servers out there.
This is from memory so the numbers are not exact but it should give you a good idea about the growth and dispel any myths about SME shrinking.
