Hi all,
Any place where this number exists?  I would include those companies and web professionals, using Linux servers as apart of their craft?

This isn't an easy question to answer, or probably even a meaningful one, especially because it's easy to be a Linux user without knowing it. E.g., most consumer WiFi routers run Linux. Android phones & tablets run Linux. Chromebooks run Linux. A lot of set-top boxes run Linux. That's several billion Linux users from those alone.

You'll have even more issues determining what it means to say a company use Linux.

Once you've figured out what you mean by a "Linux user", there are probably some estimates, of varying quality using various methodologies.
