Currently, there are approximately 10,000,000 Developers worldwide in 
  - 1,000,000 Borland Users
  - 2,000,000 Java Developers
  - 2,000,000 C/C++ Developers
  - 5,000,000 Visual Basic Developers

I would "guess" the number of people who have ever modified and 
contributed open source to be on the order of 100,000 (at best).

Actually, I don't get it.  But my earlier post was probably less clear
