Here's a 2001 index from Google

http://www.google.com/search2001.html

Pretty interesting. For example,

Results 1 - 10 of about 18,600,000 for linux
Results 1 - 10 of about 1,690,000 for novell
Results 1 - 10 of about 1,430,000 for suse
Results 1 - 10 of about 294 for caledonia.net

compared to today

Results 1 - 10 of about 483,000,000 for linux
Results 1 - 10 of about 38,000,000 for suse
Results 1 - 10 of about 35,200,000 for novell
Results 1 - 10 of about 14,400 for caledonia.net

I'm not sure this says much for the "popularity" of any particular word in
the past 7 years, as it does for the overall increase in indexed websites
over the past 7 years!
