Well, no, there probably is for all those servers, just 1 compiled version
(with distributed copies) of boost (or any library).

In all segments except desktop/laptop, Linux or Android is in the lead.

Again, Android for me counts as 1 user (apart from the fact we're not
talking C or C++ anymore), as 99.99999999% of Android users wouldn't know
what a software library is, they know what "like" means, though!

Yes, in my router.

As long as it's civilized, it's like sitting in the pub, and discuss the

harm in that...
